Roscoea purpurea 'Vannin' - HWJK2406

Pot Size: 2 litre (deep)
Price: £15.00
Originating from a single plant collection made from under steep light woodland in the Mewa Khola, North-eastern Nepal in 2002. Where their fleshy roots formed an enveloping dense carpet, with sturdy dark-red upright stems to 1m tall. With stem-sheathing narrow foliage and congested terminal clusters of elongated seed capsules, which had succeeded the distinctly large broad-lipped orchid-like successive white flowers with purple stripped labellum August-October. Easily grown in sun or shade in a humus-rich soil that is drained. Named for our grandson born in July 2007
