Alyogyne Lavender Lace Alyogyne 'Lavender Lace'
Code: 90441
Price: $8.95

Quantity in Basket: none

Inter-species hybrid. Large lavender-purple tulip shaped bell flowers on a sturdy upright woody shrub. The foliage is so fine and fernlike that it sometimes almost appears to have no foliage at all. Blooms nearly continuously. Unlike Alyogyne huegeli hybrids that can have week stems that break easily or need staking, 'Lavender Lace' may require staking only for straightness. It has a strong woody trunk and branches. It is easily trainable to any size requirement since it blooms at a small size. Ours is trained as a six foot standard which is easily maintained with a once a year pruning. Unpruned height could easily be 8 feet or more. This new type is very vigorous and full growing and quickly makes a nice specimen plant and while the foliage is fine it is very multi-branched. It doesn't seem to require special care with fertilizing that it's relatives and other Australian plants require and has never gotten any special treatment. In our garden it is growing in adobe clay soil next to roses and geraniums as an example of how tough it is. First time in propagation and first time offered for sale. USDA zones 9 - 10. (Thompson) Malvaceae
