Description

Fly the African flag in plant form with this unusual, exotic-looking beauty Chasmanthe floribunda. Not often seen available in the UK, this is your chance to grow something very unique in your own garden which will bring with it a blaze of fiery colour to ignite your planting combinations with their bright two-tone scarlet and orange flowers!

During summer, tall flower spikes stand to attention displaying a truly captivating formation of flag-like blooms, staggered neatly in line along the stem. The tall, upright sword-like foliage just adds to the seasonal appeal. These fabulous plants grow well in pots or borders in a sunny position, but do best if brought under shelter for winter. If you enjoy creating gorgeous flower arrangements, these exquisite Chasmanthe floribunda flowers are a breathtaking keynote!
