Costas productus in the Illawarra

By: on 30 June 2016
Grows OK in dappled light under large trees provided that water is kept up to it - minimum temp on east facing slopes in northern Illawarra is ~7 degrees. Slow to acclimatise in first winter but seems established after 2nd year. Attractive red-orange flower, plant height 60-70cm. Use osmocote in warmer months to push it along. Good tropical looking ground cover.
