And now for something unique and rather special. We selected this stunning bright-red stemmed Orontium from a large batch of seedlings some years ago. After a period of testing this has proven to be a stable colouration, something we have never seen before! The leaves are also quite unusual for an Orontium, being a much stronger shade of green, and thus contrasting beautifully with the stems. In addition, the plant keeps more of its leaves throughout the winter than the standard Orontium aquaticum. The best colouration is achieved in full sun, and planting in shallow water shows the colours off to best effect.

    We recommend starting your Orontium aquaticum off in a pot of 2 litres capacity. Read more on how to pot and care for your plant.
