Rostrinucula dependens (Weeping Rostrinucula)

SunZone: 7b-10 36" tall Origin: China

Open House/Web-Only! This green-sheep of the salvia family is little-known outside its native haunts from Shaanxi, China, south to Yunnan. While rostrinucula will never win a beauty contest, it is well in the running for most unusual. The flaking brown bark adorns an otherwise obscure 3' tall die-back shrub. Obscure until late summer, when the long pendent flower racemes emerge from the branch tips, giving the overall effect of a miniature cascading pink waterfall. The tiny pink flowers open each day as the floral display travels slowly down the long flower spike, finally ending in mid-October. One of the truly great WHATZAT plants! In warmer climates, the wood may remain and the plant may reach 5-6' tall. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml)
