Also known as "Bridal wreath" which we think is an appropriate name for this rarely grown stately saxifrage relative from Chile. The attractive long lasting  white flowers that are held on long graceful wands that sit above clumpy deeply lobed leaves have little red spots in their throats.

This very pretty plant is suited to a lightly shaded or even full shade position and will clump up easily in a short space of time. Dig in lots of compost to provide a humus rich environment. Providing a well drained position will also ensure the plant grows well.  Here at Puriri Lane we plant them under our large trees and they seem to really love this environment. It is also a wonderful plant to put into the garden to support our very important pollinators such as bees who love the open faces of the flowers as they are easy access for them.

Francoa ramosa will flower from summer through to autumn, and continue flowering for many months. This is a plant that readily provides volunteers due to its self sowing ability, however, you can always deadhead to prevent this or alternatively pull up the little volunteers and find them a new home! Cutting back old leaves will tidy the plants up and cutting back stems can encourage a second flush.

Plants can also be split over time and early spring is the best time to do this.  It is also a great cut flower lasting around a week in the vase.

Please note that on occasion Aramex may deem an area to be rural where other companies may not, this unfortunately is outside of our control as Aramex are the preferred courier for live plants, as other couriers will not transport them. Where this occurs we will need to get in touch to get you to deposit the additional rural fee
