Reineckea carnea 'Sapa Surprise' - BWJ15177

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
Becoming invaluable as an evergreen groundcover for shade, as gardeners become acquainted with this perennial, that is closely related to Lily of the valley. This collection was a surprise indeed, as I finally fought my way to the very end of a wild valley deep in the mountains surrounding Sapa, an old hillstation in northern Vietnam in April 2017. Here it had thrust its creeping-rooting stems along the ground, forming a cover of strap-shaped ribbed leaves, even in dense shade. Bearing pink lily of the valley-like flowers August-October. Height 20cm. Easily grown in shade in an acid-neutral soil.
