Plant Description

We are super excited to make this plant available. Nectarwand Red False Vervain is a new Bustani Plant Farm introduction and exclusive offering developed here at our nursery. We are one of the few institutions worldwide doing any breeding work with this group of plants. This one is an interspecific cross of S. microphylla with another species resulting in what we believe to be the first large red-flowered hybrid. We love these plants for their long nectar wands of showy flowers that open from the bottom to the top. Every year they rank in the top 2 or 3 of species visited by hummingbirds. They are hands down the favorite when it comes to total number of visits of both butterflies and hummingbirds combined. Nectarwand Red is making its debut in 2017 and we plan to release other selections in the future.
