Roscoea purpurea - HWJK2400

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
One of our collection made as we reappeared from the forests of the Mewa Khola on our 2002 trek with Dan Hinkley in North-eastern Nepal. From open exposed cliffs, where their fleshy roots formed an enveloping dense carpet, with sturdy upright purple 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 flowers, variably coloured from white to purple June-October. Easily grown in sun or shade in a humus-rich soil that is drained.
