FRANCOA ROGERSONS FORM – HAPPY UNDER SHADE AND AS A HOUSEPLANT! $2.30

MIXED COLOURS IN PURPLE, PINK AND WHITE, DROUGHT TOLERANT AND FROST HARDY! KEEPS COMING YEAR AFTER YEAR!

 

Introducing a stunning new variety of the typically pale pink Francoa sonchifolia, now featuring large panicles of deep pink, star-shaped blossoms adorned with striking crimson markings on long stalks. This flower is perfect for cutting and adding a splash of colour to any arrangement.

These impressive star-shaped flowers are supported by strong, erect stems. This new introduction is not only a fantastic cut flower but also thrives in part shade to full shade, making it ideal for planting under large tree canopies. It is both drought and frost hardy, featuring neat rosettes of wavy-edged, mid-green foliage.

60cm x 45cm.

Pot on seedlings to harden off and mature before finally planting out in the garden.
