Description

Height x Spread:  70cm x 50cm

Tall and elegant, 'Majestic Fougere' brings more than a hint of glamour to the garden with its flamboyant orchid-like flowers, each pure white with a central pink brush stroke to every petal and a wine red flecked throat, complemented with glossy green foliage.

A go-to plant for many florists, it will last up to two weeks in an arrangement but is also reliably prolific and long flowering in the garden too.  With regular cutting and careful removal of faded flowerstems by pulling them from the base, it can be encouraged to bloom from mid summer far into autumn.  Perfect for adding impact to the middle of the border or an arrangement of pots on a terrace, in colder areas it will need protection for a couple of winters before establishing itself.  For the best results, plant it in a moist but free draining soil in part shade.
