Streptocarpus caulescens

Streptocarpus caulescens, aka Nodding Violet, if you think you can never find love again in a hanging plant, think again! She's an easy-care plant gal for a hanging basket, she's cute, soft, has green velvety leaves, but the true winner is her purple, trumpet-shaped flowers that hang on curving stems. You're back in love!

Description

Streptocarpus caulescens is an easy-care, flowering plant that is great for hanging baskets which makes her super popular and hard to find. She goes by the name of 'Nodding Violet' because she produces clusters of purple/blue flowers that sit on her long, slender stems, which arch over, making her look a bit sleepy. The small, dark green, fleshy leaves are covered in fine hairs. They are nice and soft.

Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground, and are excellent performers for your garden - it's our plant promise guarantee!
