Long-Leaved Whorlflower Overview

Morina is a genus containing 3 accepted species of evergreen perennials with rosettes of spiny aromatic leaves and tall, thistle-like spikes of tubular or trumpet-like flowers in summer. They are members of the Caprifoliaceae (honeysuckle) family of flowering plants and are native to the Himalayan region. Cultivated varieties are known as long-leaved whorlflowers popular for their white flowers that develop from pink to crimson. They prefer well-drained, nutrient-poor soils in full sun and protection from wet winters.
