Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Manchac On Feb 6, 2009, Manchac from Prairieville, LA wrote:

With very little effort Burbidgea produces a "florist-quality" plant you will be proud to show off. The golden flowers make a spectacular show with the backdrop of polished dark green leaves. Mine bloomed right at Christmas this year. It starred as the table centerpiece. This is a very easy plant.
No trouble with bugs or disease (so far). It will take a couple of years of growth to fill the container to the spectacular stage but it will bloom every six months or so in the meanwhile. The flowers last a couple of weeks. For best result with the least care, this plant ranks near the top.
