Great tropical plant, this will give your garden an exotic look and feel.
  • Ornamental: Beautiful, tropical flowering plant with lush leaves all year round. Prolific flower spikes look like fire-sticks, glowing iridescent – even at night they stand out!
  • Beneficial insects: Attracts lots of bees – they love it. Attracts butterflies and some nectar feeding birds.
  • Medicinal: Aqueous Extract of leaf used for profound lowering of blood pressure. Several other medicinal uses with lots of research on this species.
Plant in part shade to full sun in a protected position. Can handle quite a lot of shade but produces more flowers in full sun.
Shipping info:
