Doryanthes excelsa

Doryanthes excelsa

When you need to be bold, Doryanthes excelsa excels. The oversized, sword like foliage gives this plant a strong textural appeal. The lime green of the foliage sets off the striking bright red flowers that sit atop the bright red flower spike. Growing to 1.5m high by 2m wide, Doryanthes excelsa has an almost pre-historic look that sets it apart. Grows best in full sun and can withstand dry periods once established, this plant makes and excellent addition in both modern and native gardens.
