Family: Acanthaceae

This Brazilian tropical plant with wide dark green glossy leaves produces 4 inch yellow brush-like bracts with pale yellow flowers. It grows up to 4 feet in height and needs moist soil and full shade. Be sure to give protection from frost. The botanical name is quite confused and needs work by botanists. In the 1800's, the original S. calicotricha was recognized as a different species from S. fulvicoma but is now considered by some to be the same plant. Another Schaueria is now widely known as Schaueria fulvicoma but it does match the botanical description. We are offering it as Schaueria sp. Lime Puff.
