Saracha quitensis - BSWJ14748

Pot Size: 2 litre (deep)
Price: £40.00
A delightful small to medium-sized shrub where we were first introduced to this Paramo plant (a distinct high altitude flora) in Colombia at 3745m. Only 1.5 m tall with occasionally thorny branches on the old specimen we collected from, with simple, alternate and spirally arranged leaves, obovate to elliptic bright-green and a bit fleshy. The long yellow and orange funnel-shaped terminal flowers with recurving mouth and exerted stigmas and stamen are held singly on short branches, resulting in black ovate fruit 1.5cm across. Best grown out of severe cold in a sunny well drained site.
