Cardiandra alternifolia × amamiohshimensis

Pot Size: 1.5 litre
Price: £15.00
From cultivation in Japan an unusual herbaceous member of the Hydrangea family. A hybrid that has arisen in cultivation, between the alpine species that we see in the high mountain forests and the species reputedly from the Ryukyu Islands. In this selection the bright pink flowers are all fertile without the sterile bracts normally seen on the alpine species, forming slowly expanding clumps of upright reddish branching stems to 80 cm tall, with ovate toothed leaves. Bearing July-September terminal well branched panicles of all fertile flowers with contrasting blue stamen. For a cool shady site in a leafy acidic soil, protect from wind.
