Roscoea purpurea 'Snow Goose' - HWJK2169

Pot Size: 1 litre (deep)
Price: £15.00
A selected form from our Nepalese expedition to the eastern end of the country in 2002, with Dan Hinkley and Jamaica Kinkade. After which we grew this selection for several years in our stock field before selecting pure white forms without any trace of purple (out of several 100s of plants). These were then segregated to a different field to observe for several years to guarantee that there was still no trace of purple. It is a much shorter plant than the normal seedlings from this collection to 30cm or less for us, but without sacrificing the size of flower which is substantial in this species. Late flowering from this provenance, August to November. Best grown in a drained fertile soil that does not dry out, in part shade.
