Product Details
This has to be one of the best finds of recent years. Foliage is evergreen just like other members of this group of plants (Helonias, Heloniopsis etc) and lanceolate, being pale green and around 10 cms long on large plants but only 1 cm wide or so. These leaves make rosettes of growth and multiple rosettes will form to make a clump. The flowers form from the centre of each rosette on stems to around 10 cms high at first, this extends to around 30 cms as the flowers mature. Flowers colour starts as a pale lilac white and ages as the stem lengthens to a paleish pink/red colour as can be seen in the photos here.
