Crossandra infundibuliformis 'Fortuna' is prized for making flower garlands in its native homes of Sri Lanka and Southern India. This variety has been developed to produce a particularly good display of peachy-orange flowers, blooms for months on end. Commonly known as the Firecracker Flower, this tender sub-shrub forms a well-branched plant, cloaked in glossy, dark foliage all year round. This tropical evergreen makes an exotic addition to a warm conservatory, or grown as a houseplant. During the summer months it will enjoy a sunny spot on the patio. Given its exotic origins, Crossandra requires warm conditions, above 15C (59F), all year round. Height: 80cm (31"). Spread: 50cm (20").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
