Christia obcordata (Butterfly wing plant) is Back !! July 2016

Very exciting news this week as we found out that we will be able to obtain the popular Christia obcordata, aka Butterfly Wing plant, later this week !

There is limited supply from the grower and we were able to reserve 50 of these beauties.

They will come in a 8 inch "deco pot" with a metal Butterfly ornament.

They have been growing in part shade, part sun, which we think is the best conditions for the success of this rare specimen.

Keep them in the pot or plant in the ground, either way, they will thrive.  Keeping it in the pot will limit it's growth to about 2 feet. Our experience with planting in the ground, they can easily get 3-5 feet high !

We will be bringing them to Williams Park Summer Market this coming weekend, and you can also get them from us at our Private St. Pete location, starting this Friday afternoon -and we will continue to have them for sale during the week, as long as supplies last.

Just email or call us to make an appointment !
