Roscoea auriculata



18th July 2005

Roscoea auriculata is a splendid thing. It has large purple flowers, often with a flash of white on the inner staminodes. It starts flowering in June, when the stems have reached about 30cm, and can continue into september or even october. There is said to be some variation in flower colour in wild populations, but at present this is hardly represented in cultivation.
