Price: €9.95

This Chilean native plant has sprays of tough, spiny green leaves, and new growth in the centre is a vivid red. It makes an excellent and arresting plant for containers and also in very well-drained spots, making an excellent groundcover plant with a tropical appearance. As it is slightly tender, it is ideally planted near the sea, and it should be protected from the worst of winter wetness - either mulch with gravel or plant in a container with plenty of grit and drainage. Mature plants can produce a flower from the centre in summer. Up to 40 x 40cms. 2L container. Please note: items displayed on this website may not be in stock in each of our shops.
