Flowering Months
Rarely seen, Rostrinucula dependens 'Happy Crusade' is similar in its appearance to a buddleja. A hardy, deciduous, suckering shrub with arching stems that are cloaked with lance-shaped, dark grey-green leaves and brown, flaking bark. Long, drooping panicles of bright purple-pink flowers appear from August and continue until October, creating a magnificent cascading effect. Rostrinucula makes an unusual addition to the garden, enjoying a sheltered position where it will always attract attention for its striking appearance. Perfect for bringing late summer interest to borders and exotic planting schemes, or grown as a specimen plant on the patio. Height and spread: 180cm (6').

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Rostrincula in any moist, well drained soil in sun or semi shade. Rostrincula is hardy to -10C (14F) but will prefer a sheltered position with protection from cold, drying winds.
More Info
Feed and water Rostrincula plants regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Rostrincula may die back during cold winters, but new growth will appear in spring. Stems that have died back can simply be pruned out in spring.
