MORINA longifolia

Well drained soil
Pot Size


Height x Spread: 60cm x 45cm

Sturdy stems packed with concentric circles of large, gently arching white tubular flowers, that turn pink then crimson with age, above a rosette of thistle-like, supple, glossy foliage. Evergreen spicy citrus-scented leaves. This rather elegant plant has an unusual flowering display from July through August.

It's architectural form would enhance any gravel, coastal setting or contemporary space, whilst the delightful flowers are quite at home in a cottage garden. Native to the Himalayas, this hardy plant prolifically self-seeds. It thrives in a very well-drained thin soil in full sun. Protect from excessive moisture in the winter
