Francoa sonchifolia ‘Rogerson’s Form’


Out of stock


Deep lilac pink spires of flowers. Each flower is a star etched with deeper pink kitten whiskers. They are closely stacked all along the top of the 75cm spires. Superb cut flowers, used in earlier centuries to weave wreathes to adorn maiden’s heads. Long blooming through summer and autumn, so good supplies for many maidens. Broad, scalloped leaves form a neat wide, low clump. Francoas are indispensible for Shade gardens, growing happily in Deep Shade to Afternoon Shade, or Dappled Light under trees and shrubs. Will even cope with Dry Shade once established. Not fussy about soil type, tolerating sandy to clay soils. Frost hardy. Native of Chile
