perfect for pollinators

We had never grown this little flower before but I am so glad we did as it is makes such an excellent cut flower.  Also known as Poor Mans Orchid as the little flowers look very much like an orchid and are very pretty!

While poor man’s orchids do well in shady positions, they will cope with sun as long as they get some respite from the hot afternoon sun.  An excellent choice for pots and planters as well as the garden, plants will happily self sow, so you will always have them. 

Plants are a mix of colours from mauve to pale pink to white, so what you get will be a lucky dip but they are all pretty!  The plants are a compact variety, but pinching out growing tips will keep them nice and busy.  The more you cut the flowers, the more they will continue to produce them for you. Flowers from spring right through summer.  

Height 45cm a x45cm Wide

Annual | Will self sow

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
