Cardiandra formosana 'Xitou Survivor' - BSWJ2005

Pot Size: 1.5 litre
Price: £15.00
From our original collection of this herbaceous hydrangea look-alike, which took us many days to find after obtaining special permission from the Taiwan University’s Experimental Forest in Hsitou (now Xitou) in 1993. With soft narrow serrated leaves held on branching upwardly inclined stems to around 1 m tall, terminating in a lace-cap corymb with sterile pinkish florets subtending the violet fertile flowers on reddish stalks until Christmas or frost. Best grown in a moisture retentive, but well drained shady site in an acidic to neutral soil, protect from wind and severe cold.
