Justicia carnea

$14.99

The accepted name for this Brazilian tropical is Justicia carnea, but it is sometimes listed under the synonym Jacobinia carnea. It also frequently goes by two common names, “Brazilian Plume” and “Flamingo Flower”. The large leaves are dark green and the main veins make deep furrows on the leaf surface. This exotic flowering plant makes a large shrub in tropical areas. The plant can get 3 to 5 feet tall and 3 feet wide. If planted in the ground in the Dallas area they will usually come back from the roots if the winter is not severe. The plume like inflorescence is composed of many tubular flowers that are produced spring, summer and fall. This is a nice colorful plant for shady areas or morning sun. It also makes a nice blooming pot plant, but protect it from freezing temperatures.

Shade to partial sun, temp. 35 to 95 degrees, 3 to 5 ft. tall, allow getting slightly dry between watering

Family: Acanthaceae
