Roscoea are tuberous perennial plants, native to China. Linear or lance shaped leaves bend into an elegant arch, fashioning impressive flower heads, much like that of an orchid. It is recommended that Roscoea are placed within flower beds and borders or used as under planting within cottage and informal garden settings. You should expect to see Roscoea grow to an approximate height and spread of 30cm (12”).
Roscoea are best planted in moist, well-drained soil of loam or clay within an acidic, neutral or alkaline PH balance. They prefer a position of part shade although will survive in full sun if sheltered from intense midday heat, watered thoroughly and consistently during the summer. Full shade will reduce leaf colour and will cause detriment to the overall shape and posture of this plant. At the time of planting apply a layer of mulch to act as winter protection and water thoroughly and deeply.
Water your plants thoroughly and keep well-watered on a regular basis. It may be beneficial to apply a layer of mulch so that the root system is kept cool, moisture is retained and weeds are suppressed. Deadhead Roscoea after the flowering period as this will encourage future growth and optimum health.
