Roscoea auriculata - GWJ9230

Pot Size: 2 litre (deep)
Price: £10.00
Our collections gathered from the cold valley in northern Himalayas in 2002. Where we found clumps of this species growing amongst boulders on our climb to Thongdu. Where their fleshy roots had formed dense clumps with short upright stems to 30cm tall. With stem-sheathing narrow foliage auricled at the base and congested terminal clusters of elongated bursting seed capsules, which had succeeded the broad-lipped orchid-like successive purple flowers, June-October. Easily grown in sun or shade in a humus-rich soil that is drained.
