Tupistra aurantiaca
Product Details
We're pleased to finally offer this unusual evergreen perennial from Sikkim. Leaves are around 2 cms wide and 30 cms long on well grown plants and form a fan of growth, colour is rich deep green. Flowers emerge in early spring and appear at first to be palest green like small pineapples held low in the growth. They eventually colour-up to an orange-yellow colour and last many weeks. Bright orange berry-like fruits follow in milder climates. Easy in a moist lightly shaded site.
