Isoplexis canariensis full sun

Forging a bold impression, this architectural beauty combines winsome, dark evergreen foliage on thick red-hued stems and foot long, noble spires in enticing autumn shades. Beneath a floral glow of gold, copper and orange, the large, downward-curving leaves are pointed, leathery and toothed, achieving an open, yet stiffly erect shrublike foundation that eventually becomes woody. Densely arranged, arching hooded flowers with three lower petals garnish the long blooming torches, casting their uniquely warm chroma on Melianthus major’s icy blue profile to great effect. Related to Digitalis and endemic to the Canary Islands, Isoplexis canariensis is a stately, medium-sized specimen for the mixed border requiring protection right around 25° and judicious trimming as it regenerates very slowly.

Blooms late May–October.

Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 9.
