Product Details

Sanchezia is also called the golden vein plant because of its dark green leaves with prominent yellowish veins. This shrub grows upright to a height of 1 – 3 metres and just as wide. It should be planted in a rich, organic, well-drained soil in filtered sunlight as it cannot tolerate direct full sunlight. Sanchezia can be grown year-round in a flowerbed or used as border or hedge plant. It can also be planted indoors in containers and misted twice daily as it prefers moist conditions. This interesting plant also produces eye-catching yellow, tubular flowers surrounded by red or orange bracts on spikes above the foliage.
