Satin Checks Peacock Ginger, Resurrection Lily, Kaempferia

Kaempferia elegans 'Satin Checks', K. laotica 'Satin Checks'

The large oval flat tropical looking rosettes of foliage is heavily checkered with deep burgundy to near black satiny checks that contrast nicely with the rich medium to deep green foliage.

Peacock Gingers are often recommended as a Hosta or Plantain Lily replacement in hot summer climates. It can also be enjoyed as an easy and rewarding container specimen or as a ground cover beneath larger plants for a shaded porch or patio. Bring containerized plants indoors prior to the first freeze.

Schinz's Carrion Flower, Starfish Flower, Starfish Cactus

Stapelia schinzii var. angolensis, Ceropegia schinzii var. angolensis, Gonostemon schinzii var. angolensis

The thick, smooth, succulent, upright to trailing stems are rounded to 4-angled and tend to be green and purple when grown in high indirect light but become burgundy under full sun conditions. In summer Schinz's Carrion Flower produces 3-5" wide burgundy to brownish yellow starfish-shaped flowers that have a fringe of purple to burgundy club-shaped hairs dangling from the edges of the petals and tremor at the slightest breeze attracting insects for pollination. Like the larger growing Starfish Cactus, the flowers produce a light scent of rotting meat to attract their main pollinators - flies. This is an easy to grow succulent that will readily multiply into a dense mass of short upright stems and where allowed to trail the stems can grow to exceed 18" long. Provide full sun to bright indirect sunlight in a very well-draining, cactus-like soil for optimum vigor, health and flowering. Makes an easy windowsill, porch, or patio plant whose unusual flowers are sure to be a conversation piece. It can tolerate slightly more moisture when in active growth but should still be allowed to become moderately dry between waterings. Reduce watering in winter, especially if grown under cool conditions. These are well-established young plants with multiple plants per pot. Item# 12633
