Plants

Cautleya spicata robusta Visitors to the gardens are amazed that this seemingly luxuriant and tropical looking plant is hardy. Not only that but it revels in shady conditions, especially in good soil. The Canna-like leaves are on stems which freely produce dark red bracts from which exotic soft orange hooded flowers are produced. Clumps steadily. Came through the winter of 2009 unscathed and the winter of 2010 a bit scathed!
