Description

Note: There is a limited quantity of these plants available. They are in 8cm pots.

This plant from Argentina grows to a multi-stemmed shrub or can be shaped to a small tree and will reach about 1.8 metres. It has very pretty long blooming blue bells about 5 – 8 cm long in clusters, which look much like small brugmansia flowers. It can be pruned hard in early spring if it becomes leggy. It can be used to great advantage in a container. Small birds love the flowers, but beware the fruit is poisonous and on no account should you eat it.
