Deppea Splendens 4" pot


Golden Fuchsia, Deppia splendens. Believed to be extinct in the wild, the flowers that delicately hang along the lilting branches of this rare deppea are just delightful.

This is a difficult plant to get ahold of and we want it to reach higher circulation so we are offering this plant at a fantastic price. Each plant is grown from seed.

Since this gorgeous rarity is native to the cloud forests of Mexico, it won't tolerate extremes in temperatures.

(Rubiaceae)

Light: Part shade

Water: Moist, but make sure that it isn't sitting in water.  Likes light, well-drained soil whether it is in the ground or grown in a pot.

Soil: Light mix with plenty of organic matter

Fertilizer: Slow release fertilizer for acid-loving plants (such as is sold for Rhododendrons)

Hardiness: USDA Zone 9, 30-32° F.  Deppea likes mild, cool summers, so it won't grow well in areas with very hot weather in the summer.  Can tolerate a mild frost.
