Ruspolia hypocrateriformis - Red Ruddy Rose, Red Mock Plumbago

Rare small shrub from tropical and southern Africa with 1 inch tubular red flowers in spikes. Blooms over many months in summer. Will grow to 3 feet high and wide in bright shade with rich, moist soil. Ruspolia hypocrateriformis has smooth leaves with angled stems, compared to the slightly hairy leaves and round stems of Ruspolia seticalyx. Ruspolia hypocrateriformis is also a more robust plant. Otherwise, they are very similar and easily misidentified. It is ideal for attracting butterflies as a nectar plant.
