(Cutting Grown)

This is a chance hybrid from the Ruth Bancroft Garden and is thought to be a cross between Alyogyne huegelii and Alyogyne hakeifolia, which were growing in close proximity. Wispy leaves frame the crepe paper thin flowers of soft lavender appear over a long period during the warmer months of the year. Makes and excellent cut flower but be sure to cut the flower before it opens for the best vase life. As soon as the pollinators get to, the days are numbered. It responds well to a hard prune in the spring to avoid the awkward, lanky look.

      Stunning flowers

      I've ordered plants from here multiple times and everything has arrived very well packaged and healthy. This one was no exception. It was exciting to see it flower within a couple weeks of recieving it. Pale lilac petals with a contrasting dark burgundy center, makes the pistil really pop. Absolutely stunning flowers in person.
