Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
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.
