Roscoea purpurea - HWJK2175

Pot Size: 2 litre (deep)
Price: £12.00
Our collection from rocky outcrops above the upper Arun Valley close to the Tibetan border in North-eastern Nepal. Where their fleshy roots formed an enveloping dense carpet, with sturdy upright stems to 75cm tall. With stem-sheathing narrow foliage and congested terminal clusters of elongated seed capsules, which had succeeded the broad-lipped orchid-like successive white purple-stripped flowers, June-October. Easily grown in sun or shade in a humus-rich soil that is drained.
