Please be aware Aramax are experiencing significant delays in freight in and around Auckland. We will not send any fragile plants in and around Auckland (unless you tell us too, at your own risk! ), until it is safe to do so. You can still order so you can garauntee plant supply, but please understand there are delays in getting plants to you safely. Freight out of Auckland, Waiheke Island and the South Island are still experiencing significant delays. We are working hard with a limited workforce under strict conditions which is also causing a delay in getting orders to you. We thank you for your patience and investing in upcycled and pre-loved plants, healthier for the environment and healthier for you! :-)
Originally from Rio de Janeiro, this stunning landscape and house plant was brought to Europe in 1826. This plant and many hybrids are now grown worldwide in the millions. The plant is a classic vase shape, very pleasing to the eye, in broad leaves of dark green, with-silber white bands. Even without a flower this is a striking plant, but when it flowers, it is a showstopper- the pyramidal flowerhead is raised about 15cm and has spiky, shocking-pink flower bracts and blue flower petals, a sumptuous combination. Brilliant as a potted plant, an epiphyte, or groundcover. We find ours thrive in a sunny position with a hint of shade.
