Francoa sonchifolia


Chilean Bridal Wreath

USDA Zone: 7-9

Plant number: 1.218.400


Native to Chile, these are seldom seen in North American gardens. Plants form a low rosette of fuzzy dark-green leaves, bearing upright spikes of soft-pink orchid-like flowers, each marked with a rose blotch. Stems are produced from mid summer through the fall. Best in a mild winter climate with cool summers. An unusual and attractive cut flower. Francoa are sometimes grown as annuals in cold-winter climates. Prefers an evenly-moist soil with sun or part shade. Protect from hot afternoon sun in warmer regions. Evergreen.
