Take a little piece of the African sun and grow it in your own garden with this golden goddess of a plant, Chasmanthe floribunda 'Ducktii'. This striking variety is also known as African Flag for its uniform banner-like blooms which sit systematically along the tall, upright flower spike. Every garden needs at least a hint of gold, and this dazzling plant brings it by the bucket-load! A neat clump or two of these extravagant blooms will be just what’s needed to highlight the sunny areas of your garden, whether you choose to plant them with leafy tropicals or mixed cottage-style plantings.

If you like to make your own cut-flower bouquets, you’ll just love nipping out into the garden to snip a few of these glorious stems. Tall, sturdy stems means you can use a tall vase and make a big impact in the home too! Perfect for pots or borders, Yellow Chasmanthe floribunda 'Ducktii' is ideally suited to growing in a sunny, sheltered location in dry, gravel or coastal gardens.
