Streptosolen - marmalade bush
Showy clusters of tangerine orange and yellow flowers completely cover this bush in spring and autumn in a fiery display. Popular evergreen for tropical-style gardens; and excellent value - our nursery plants flower for at least four months from July to October continually. If you want maximum colour for minimum cost, go marmalade!
