Roscoea auriculata 'Bressingham Form'



17th May 2009


A good purple flowered plant. I remember seeing it in the Bressingham catalogues of the 1970's and at the time I assumed that the purple colour in the pictures had been 'enhanced' but in retrospect I think it was a fair representation. I both bought and killed the plant back then, in the days when I still thought that gingers were difficult to grow. The belief that a plant is difficult will always result in its rapid demise!
