Crossandra greenstockii is a very hardy, low-growing, herbaceous plant that has large, hairy leaves, which form a rosette from which the flower stalks arise. Spikes of one-lipped bright, glistening orange flowers are borne on these erect stalks from October to June.
A beautiful garden subject that can be planted in a grassland garden or in groups for a bright splash of colour.
It has a woody rootstock from which new leaves will emerge each season. Grows well in full sun but also tolerates semi-shade.
Size: up to 30cm
