A very fast-growing plant, the long-clustered tritome is a perennial plant that comes from South Africa.
The vegetation is formed by a tuft of leaves arranged in a bluish-green crown. At flowering, stems reaching 1.5 meters develop revealing orange to red flower spikes at their ends. The flowers appear from the bottom green up on the spike and change color in that order and as the flowers mature.
The flowers are very beautiful and keep very well as cut flowers.
This plant does not require any particular maintenance, it is enough to find a very sunny and warm place for it.
The Uvaria variety is one of the tallest in its family.
