'Mount Congreve Coral'


Pot Size : 9cm

This beautiful South African bulbous plant is a joy in my garden. It has tough sword-like leaves that stay green throughout the year in most positions. In June/July it produces upright spikes of tubular salmon flowers (not really coral!) set against dusky purple stems. It's a realiable flowerer, forming a good clump. Watsonias prefer a sunny well drained position.

  • Some foliage all year.
  • Beautiful early summer blooms.
