Halleria elliptica (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Halleria elliptica. It is a hardy evergreen shrub, with very showy, orange-red, broadly tubular flowers in summer and winter. The olive green foliage turns purple in winter which contrasts beautifully with the orange-red flowers. It then bears fleshy fruit. The flowers and fruit attract birds and insects to the garden. Makes a beautiful show when planted in groups in full sun or semi-shade. Sowing :  Sow seed in autumn or spring in a well-drained soil mix and cover lightly with the sowing medium. To prevent pre- and post-emergence damping off, the seed should be treated with a fungicide prior to sowing, or watered with a fungicide immediately after sowing. Locality: Ex Hort. Harvest: January 2020
