Cautleya spicata 'Arun Flame' - HWJK2172

Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Price: £12.00
A distinct collection of this ornamental perennial we gathered from Eastern Nepal in 2002 with Dan Hinkley and Jamaica Kincaid. Which has the darkest red stems to about 1m tall, of yellow orange flushed flowers in dense terminal spikes, sheathed by dark red bracts July-September, while the backs of the leaves are tinged purple-red. We have found this collection to be perfectly hardy in an open field even in full sun, all we have done is to apply an 8cm bark mulch every winter. Multi-stemmed mature plants.
