Fascicularia Overview

Genus containing just 1 recognised species of evergreen perennial, originating from Chile. It has now been naturalised in Great Britain and France. Naturally growing out of soil, on rocks or other organisms, this species tends to form rosettes of long, straight, green foliage, which are coloured bright red in the rosette centre. This centre rosette forms a cup, from which the short, wide inflorescence is produced. Flowers are blue and regularly arranged on the inflorescence, leading onto scaly fruits.
