Rhodocoma gigantea




A spectacular tall growing Restio forming clumps of lush green foliage. During their first couple of years they produce a mass of feathery, bright green juvenile foliage. As they mature they send up strong adult culms topped with attractive golden brown inflorescences. The female flower heads are erect whilst the male heads are arching. Best grown in sun or light shade in acid to neutral soils. As with all Restios Rhodocoma gigantea is very wind tolerant. Should be hardy to minus 8 degrees C or even less once well established.
