Summer flowering hybrid. One of the toughest plants, surviving with no extra water and on poor soil or just rocks. Great as a ground cover on an embankment or along a wall, particularly when it hangs down. Single plants will quickly form small clumps, as seen in the images above. Plant 15 plants per square metre for ground cover.
Green foliage in winter turning red in summer with tall red flowers in early summer. It is spectacular when planted en-masse as ground cover, in full sun, but they will grow equally well with some shade.
We are a plant nursery in the Algarve specialising in dry mediterranean species. We propagate and grow our own stock in conditions they are likely to endure when they are planted out.
We grow plants that are adapted to the dry land conditions in Portugal and southern Spain, both mediterranean perennials and succulents.
We choose plants that require very little water and maintenance. We produce a range of dry land plants that are typical of the worlds mediterranean regions. These are available to order ready for planting in the wetter months of the year. Please order the plants you need and we’ll have them ready at the best time for planting.
To ensure your new plants adapt and establish quickly, we produce them in special anti-spiral root pruning containers and a range of fibre pots (no plastic waste) with our own tried and tested growing media.
Please note we have no retail outlet or garden centre and are not open to the public. For more information you can contact us here.
