Description

A great long-lasting color plant, crossandra can bloom almost nonstop all year long in the right conditions. In tropical climates, these heat- and humidity-loving plants put on quite the show with their spikes of bright orange, yellow, salmon, or pink blooms. The deep emerald green glossy foliage creates a pretty foil for other plants to play against, and the brightly colored orange blooms add wonderful color all season long. Crossandra can also be found in quite a few other warm colors, but orange is definitely the most prevalent. The five-petaled blooms are borne on columnar square bloom stalks, which are unique in themselves and add a neat effect when the plants are covered in blooms. Butterflies are very fond of Crossandra and can be found visiting them for their delicious nectar.
