"Hawaiian Heather" everblooming lavender flowers on an upright outcurved compact bush. Good for large terrariums, dish gardens and small windowsills. As the nursery trade basically grows only the 'Yatabusa' selection, this old favorite has basically disappeared from the general market.

Mexican "Cigar Flower" Modest bushy shrublet, easliy pruned to any desired size, producing many dark red tubular flowers with dark band and white rim at the tip. Always the favorite of kids. The lower more lateral growth habit (unlike the thriller 'David Verity') dictate this a spiller in container combos.
Stock Number: 66923
Multitudes of pert pink "Cigar Flowers" (each with a dark tip) on compact wide spreading shrublets. We have noted (with amusement) varying cute marketing names for this cultivar over the years as it appears, disappears, then reappears in the bedding plant market. Most peculiar indeed. We also maintain a white toned ver...
