Morina are perennial plants, native to the Himalayas, that display coils of tubular flowers held on stocky, firm stems. These elegant flowers change colour as they are fertilised, ranging from lighter to darker shades. The evergreen foliage is attractive and glossy, releasing a citrus scent when brushed against. They are best suited to flower beds and borders within courtyard, coastal and informal garden settings. You should expect to see Morina grow to approximate height of 60cm (24”) and a spread of 30cm (12”).
Morina are best planted in well-drained soil of sand, chalk and loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH setting. Supplement your soil with organic matter and provide shelter from drying winds as this will increase its chance of survival. Dig a hole that will accommodate the depth and width of the root ball, spreading the roots out before they are placed into the soil. Water thoroughly and deeply to settle the surrounding soil. They are best positioned in an area which attracts full sunlight.
There is no need to deadhead Morina as the seed heads are perfect for dried flower arrangements. Do not feel tempted to over water your plants as this can be detrimental – this is especially imperative during winter.
