Product Details

This name is causing us some confusion! We can't verify it is true but this is the name of the plant which we obtained and are selling here! It may be mis-spelled and should be burrowhti!

Foliage is pale green on compact trailing stems radiating from a central point when young. They produce many offsets and root from trailing stems which is a good means of propagation by simply lifting and replanting as they form.

   The flowers are trumpet shaped with a wide open mouth often as wide as tall, colour is strong deep electric blue but with fine white lines in the bottom of the throat and greenish spotting also. Quite a strong growing hybrid which multiplies well. We would recommend a position in full sun with plenty of moisture and acid soil for these plants to thrive.
