Tropical Pickeral Rush

Item # 10-5045


The Tropical Pickerel Rush came from British Guiana and is related to the North American species.

The heart shaped foliage is dark , waxy green and is taller than the native variety. The flowers resemble our native Pickerel Rush except that there are two shades of color in the petals-light and dark violet blue. Several florets open as the previous ones close, thus giving a long flowering time to the spikes.

Note: With the abundance of flowers and growth, this plant requires much nourishment and must be planted in plenty of rich soil or fertilized often during the season.

If the spring weather has a lot of storms, cloudy weather and is cool, then some plants need a tad more time to get strong enough for transit.
