Description


A bountiful bloomer with a wondrously white tropical habit Beautiful and rarely seen, Achimenes provide Hispanic charm for your summer patio or can be grown as a houseplant on a light, bright windowsill. Achimenes 'Snow Princess' is a sun-loving senorita who will produce an abundance of showy, pure white blooms for a magnificent outdoor summer display. These sub-tropical beauties will need to come inside as autumn approaches - making an excellent house plant for the winter and early spring. Known also as Cupid's Bowers, Magic Flowers and Hot Water Plants. It is believed by some that if the flowerpot is plunged into hot (not boiling water) it promotes the production of flowers, although we have not tested this! Others more realistically believe these plants are best watered with water which is at room temperature. Achimenes prefer moist, well-drained soil in sun or part shade and will reach a height of 20cm, spreading to 10cm. As tender rhizomatous perennials, they may become dormant in winter, the rhizomes can be lifted and stored dark, dry and frost free.
