Cautleya spicata 'Crûg Compact' - BSWJ2690

Pot Size: 2 litre (deep)
Price: £10.00
A very distinct form of this species that we collected seed of from the Lachung Valley back in 1994. We have grown it in one of our fields since that time where it has only attained a maximum height of only 30cm, meanwhile forming a dense mat of rhizomes. With dark red upright short stems bearing long terminal inflorescences of dark red overlapping bracts with sizeable orange yellow flushed flowers over a long period June to October. Easily grown in any type of humus rich but drained soil in sun to light shade, protect the rhizomes from freezing in cold areas, with a mulch. Hardy to -15C.
