Beschorneria Septentrionalis

For sale by Paddock Plants

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

A real rarity and a spectacular one, at that: this is a large plant with glossy leaves rather like a yucca and, in summer, tall shocking pink stem from which dangle red cylindrical bells tipped with green. Quite unlike anything else seen in your average garden! Likes the sun. Fertile well drained soil. 4-5 ft. in flower. 2 litre pot.

Grower Notes

Rated H6 so really very hardy but we suspect a combination of winter cold and wet won't be to this plant's liking. Good in a big pot so it can be brought out of the cold and damp if necessary. That's what we do.
