Melianthus Major (Honey Bush) 3 litre Tall pot

25/03/23:  As you know I have re-located now; I am taking these off stock as I cannot see healthy new growth yet.  Please bear with me, I will place them back into the stock list as soon as I can.  So glad to have so much interest in these wonderful plants.

Sometimes called Peanut Butter Plant, because of the scent of the leaves when rubbed. This picture shows a four year old plant in the Cow Shed Garden. It survives the Winter so appears to be hardy.  A spectacular specimen foliage plant, particularly effective in containers or in a prime frontal position in the border. This forms a large clump of blue-green leaves, looking almost like some kind of exotic fern. Where hardy, this can form a large woody bush with big spikes of reddish-purple fragrant flowers in early summer. The flower spikes left on the plant do from a nice display too. we have harvested some for seed here and will leave some on. Ours is now about 8 feet tall.  I am now growing them on quite successfully from seed and root cuttings at the moment.
