Watsonia Mount Congreve Coral'

Plant type: Bulb

This beautiful South African bulbous plant is a joy in my garden. It has tough sword-like leaves that stay green throughout the year in most positions. In June/July it produces upright spikes of tubular salmon flowers (not really coral!) set against dusky purple stems. It's a realiable flowerer, forming a good clump. This Watsonia prefers a sunny well drained position, but will still bloom in part shade.
Some foliage all year.
Beautiful early summer blooms.
Our price: 7.50
