Description

This is a very tough little plant which takes very little care and withstands the heat of summer well where other plants wither and die. It will also cope with humid conditions and doesn’t seem to be  too bothered by insects .

It has unusual, neon-lit rosy purple red coloured flowers which look like a clover but are papery and with their approx 60cm long stems they  make an excellent cut flower.

This plant was awarded a Fleuroselect award and was the 1999 dried flower of the year.
