Morina longifolia (Large Plant)

Whorlflower

Hardy Perennial

This handsome evergreen perennial forms basal rosettes of attractive, glossy foliage with spiny margins and a lovely citrus aroma. From midsummer, Morina longifolia bears imposing, upright stems that are tiered with whorls of white, waxy flowers. As the blooms are pollinated they turn to pink, and eventually red, so that one single stem may carry three different colours for you to admire. The whorlflower is a fascinating specimen for perennial borders and makes a pleasing cut flower too. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Grow Morina in well drained soil. The Whorlflower requires sharp drainage and thrives in poor, sandy soils. Avoid sites that sit wet in winter.
Cut back Morina flower spikes as the blooms fade. Morina resents cold, wet conditions, and will appreciate some protection during particularly wet winter weather.
