Description

Countless star-shaped lipstick-red flowers open over a very long season into late autumn on bushy, spreading plants. A new and very rare flower, it was only discovered as recently as 2007 in the remote jungles of Brazil. When grown as a container plant in a sheltered spot, or even better in a conservatory, it will continue opening its buds right through the winter making a dazzling display. This gorgeous plant was under threat of extinction, with just 14 wild plants left in its native country.

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow seeds in good light at any time onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Seeds should ideally germinate in between 2 and 6 weeks although they make take considerably longer. Pot on seedlings before finally planting out into a container or a well-drained spot.
