Persian Shield (Strobilanthes dyerianus)
Great pics fleurone...good to know what the blooms look like.Cheers
Thank you brical, It wasn't until I had a walk around the garden yesterday ( garden was sort of ignored over the holidays) I even knew it bloomed, I was so thrilled.
Amazing great leaf colour throughout the summer and those gorgeous winter blooms. Of course if I had read the plant id on DG I would have known it bloomed but I didn't so it was a nice surprise.I am so happy. I had taken some cuttings a few weeks ago and they have rooted so now even happier! :)
It looks as though it is going to be a real heavy bloomer as well .
