Francoa appendiculata HCM 98045 ex Chile


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
A Chilean collection of a very large form of this showy species. You can correctly infer that since this is larger, it is showier! Four foot tall or more flower stems arise from the bold basal rosettes of ruffled rounded leaves to display in grand fashion the wands of white-throated pink flowers. If size is important to you and if we are all being honest, it is, then this is the Francoa to which all others must be measured and found lacking. Mild gardens here.
