sparmannia africana


By Gray

sparmannia africana (Sparmannia africana (African Hemp))

In full flower in January 2010. The flowers will last from early December to , probably, mid to late February.
I wonder why such a seemingly tropical plant from South Africa choses to flower in mid-winter in the UK ? It is in a conservatory, frost-free but often down to 2C

Comments on this photo is beautiful!!
