Morina longifolia
Product Details

A fabulous plant named after a French nurseryman who produced the world's first plant catalogue in 1621.

Rigid stems hold whorls of loads tubular flowers which begin as a pale pink in colour. As each flower is fertilised it becomes darker, encouraging insects to fertilise the lighter coloured ones. The bristly and glossy foliage is lanceolate, evergreen in most winters and a citrus scent is present if the foliage is touched.
