Brazilian Plume Flowers - Justicia carnea 'Huntington'

We have three sizes below to choose from.
These beautiful perennial bushes can be grown indoors as houseplants where the summer is too hot or the winter is too cold. For most of the year though, and all year round in zone such as 9a or 9b, they can live outdoors and become the large bushes you can see here.

The vibrant purple-green leaves leaves of this hardy perennial will delight you and your local hummingbirds when the pink flowers unfurl out of their purple tinged "pine-cone"! A few hours of sun a day, as well as regular feedings, will ensure lots of blossoms. The leaves get larger and darker in the partial shade, but you will have fewer flowers. Out in the sun for at least a few hours in the morning or late afternoon will produce a denser bush with more flowers but smaller lighter leaves.

They can grow fast in good conditions, so even if you start out with a small rooted plug, you will have a large specimen before long.

Small $3.00

Medium $5.00

Large $7.50
