Erica curviflora

Erica curviflora

This tender species from South Africa is quite amazing. The long curving tubular flowers are unique and distinctive to this species, and can range from yellow to orange and red. Our plant we take cuttings from is a rich orange color. This species can grow in areas that do not drop below 28 deg F in the wintertime, unless you have a heated greenhouse. 

The species is a taller growing plant, getting up to 5 ft tall in cultivation. Pruning can make a more compact and attractive specimen. The flowering is so heavy in August-September, one can prune fairly hard and still have good flowering. This plant likes water, and is found growing near streams in the wild. However, it needs good drainage as well, so give it barky/sandy soil and regular summer watering and it will be super happy.
