We are pleased to offer it again this year. This unique cultivar is often used in bouquets at weddings and festive occasions in India.

Tips for Success:
Remember, they are warm, lowland tropical plants and need a warm root system. The most vigorous is ‘Maid of Orleans.’ Slower growing varieties are ‘Flore Plena’ and ‘Grand Duke.’
• Use clay pots to maintain healthy roots.
• Bring soil to visual dryness between waterings.
• Occasionally bring to a slight wilt between waterings.
• Moderate amounts of fertilizer, not heavy feeders.
• Stop feeding in winter.
• All respond well to pruning; best not to prune in winter when growth is slow.
