A sought after and rare garden plant, this fast growing shrub has beautiful tubular purple flowers which hang in large clusters.
It can grow up to 3m high and 2m wide.
It has a bushy habit but should be pruned once every year once established, otherwise strong wind will break the new growth/branches.
This lovely plant flourishes in mild-temperate climates with minimal frost. In hot areas, grow with partial shade or moderate water.
Almost exclusively grown as an ornamental/exotic plant. It has some historical uses by medicine men in its native range because the plant contains a number of alkaloids and hallucinogens much like its relatives the Brugmansia’s and the Datura’s. It should also be noted that the all parts of the plant are likely toxic if ingested in any way.
May defoliate somewhat in frost or light freezing temperatures. Should be protected from hard or prolonged freezes.
Native to the mountains in Eucador.
For sale in South Africa.
Ready to ship in 1-3 business days
We will process your order within 1-3 business days.
Many of our plants can be couriered nationwide via postnet or the courier guy - and at checkout these options will be displayed. IF couriering doesn't come up as an option, this means that your basket contains one or more items that cannot be couriered - due to size/or practical reasons.
In this case, please either remove from your basket, or contact us for help.
For example, our horse compost cannot be sent via postnet and will therefore appear as click and collect only!
We DO offer local deliveries! To those with postcode 7130. (or in the Raithby or Somerest West area.)
Alternatively please feel free to organise your own courier.
Or ask us for assistance. :-)
NB: We normally send the plants on a Monday or Tuesday to minimise the chance they'll get stuck in a depot over the weekend.
No refunds on click & collect goods.
Normal refund policy (see terms and conditions) on other 'delivery' products.
