Halleria lucinda                Sold out

Enjoyed by the native people in the southern area of Africa where it grows, this is a very graceful plant sometimes known as the African Honeysuckle.  It needs the shelter of a conservatory or greenhouse in this country to survive, making an attractive pot plant, shrubby in nature reaching about 1m in height but will cope well with being trimmed as necessary.

The beautiful orange/yellow, tubular flowers are particularly rich in nectar and followed by purple/black berries, which are sweet and juicy, about 1-2cm in size and usually just picked and eaten, though in some parts of Africa they are also used in rituals and witchcraft...
