Wercklea ferox is a stunning rare shrub in the Hibiscus family originally from Costa Rica. A gem for tropical plant collector! This plant gets huge, up to 24" across green round leaves with gorgeous red veins. Red color seems more visible on the underside of the leaves. This plant starts by forming red buds, only to pop out a yellow delicate Hibiscus-like flower. They are quite pretty as well but often hidden from the beautiful large leaves. You can see them during the warmer months. This plant can be grown in full sun to bright filtered light. It takes a bit of room to grow and makes a captivating focal point in the garden, and it is a conversation piece between gardeners since it is so rare and not often seen. It is a rare plant for collectors who value the exotic. If it overgrows its given space, it can be pruned back to its original form and it will regrow quickly.
