Roscoea auriculata × cautleyoides

Pot Size: 2 litre (deep)
Price: £12.00
An interesting hybrid between two fairly well-known species, which has come out with larger flowers than the normal forms of A. auriculata, with a similar colouration, but with additional stripping. Their fleshy roots form dense clumps with short upright stems to around 30cm tall. With stem-sheathing narrow foliage auricled at the base, terminating in congested clusters of broad-lipped orchid-like stripped pinkie-purple flowers in succession, June-October. Easily grown in sun or shade in a humus-rich soil that is drained.
