Francoa sonchifolia full sun  partial shade

Let this long blooming carefree Chilean beauty dress up your garden. Starry, pretty pink flowers with lighter centers and a crimson brush stroke at each petal’s base embellish terminal wands on tall, gracefully canting branched stems. The fit-for-a-bride floral splendor is perfect for arrangements and is grounded by a foot high dark green basal clump of large, succulentlike, stiff durable leaves that are evergreen and wavy-edged, preferring dappled shade or half a day’s sun.

Blooms mid-July to early September

Size: 2'–3' high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 7.

Customer Comment:

“My plants arrived from Digging Dog yesterday: healthy, large, beautifully packed, and on time. From the website to the customer service to the arrival of these lovely grasses, this has been a very satisfying experience. Although website ordering is easy, I encourage you to call your order in to benefit from the friendly and knowledgeable staff.”
