Rohdea japonica 'Mure Suzumi'

8th April 2005

A vigorous cultivar with white frosted stripes, concentrated towards the tips and margins of the leaves. I find that it flowers easily and produces plenty of bright red berries in winter. It is quite hardy, but the leaves are so long lasting and slow growing that it is a pity to risk frost damage to them. I grow it in a pot in a shady greenhouse where the frost doesn't reach it.
