Morina longifolia

Morina longifolia

An elegant Himalayan plant with the most exquisite flowers. Upright stout stems carry the whorls of tubular flowers that wrap around the stem, each contained within a spiny collar. The flowers open pure white, slowly turning rose-pink and on into deepest crimson, often the same spike has flowers in all three colour stages adding to their value. The evergreen foliage is straplike, toothed and armed with weak spines, looking just like a thistle so be careful not to weed it out! This plant requires a good, fairly well-drained soil in sun. 45cm (18").
