 Sanchezia stenomacra
Family: Acanthaceae
Blood Red Feather
Origin: Peru
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterRed/crimson/vinous flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

A showy tropical perennial, this plant is very rare in private collections. It grows in jungles of Peru and prefers humid environment with filtered light. Flowers are blood red and resemble a feather. Attracts hummingbirds.

Feathery burgundy-red plumes rise above the deep green foliage and last for weeks. The true flowers are orange-red and tubular, emerging from the wispy flower heads day after day.

Upright, vigorous grower. When plants become too large, they can take a hard pruning and quickly recover and re-flower. Flowering continuously throughout the year, it even does well under partial sun.

Sanchezia stenomacra is similar to Sanchezia sanmartinensis.
