Diplolaena grandiflora (grafted) (pot)

 

First time this plant (grafted by Phil Trickett) has bloomed after being in a pot for a year and a half. Attractive shrub with woolly grey leaves and large orange to red flower heads. Ideal as a specimen plant and brilliant in pots. Best suited to well drained soils in full sun to part shade. Frost tolerant. Height 2m x width 1.5m.
