Description:

Small to medium sized shrub with glossy, dark green evergreen leaves and masses of large, colourful flowers, open from January onwards, often until March. It requires a good soil with free drainage, and on the acidic side and prefers continuous moisture. We have lovely starter plants on offer, propagated from the very shrub seen on the pictures: please note that the flower colour may vary among offspings. They need to be kept in the provided pot for few months when they can be planted out into the soil.
