Bocconia frutescens - BSWJ14292

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
One of the most dramatic foliage plants we have come across in the past few years. We have encountered it in the wild varying from large trees to sizeable shrubs, depending on its habitat. A member of the poppy family, closely related to Macleaya, hence the name. This collection represents a particularly fine form we collected seed of in Armenia, in Colombia at 3200m, which had formed a small single trunked tree. With particularly large pinnately lobed grey-green leaves to almost a meter long and a huge infructescence nearly 2m long of inflated seed pods. Best grown with some respect for frost, it is not known how much frost this genus can take, should be hardy at the root in a well drained soil in full sun.
