Streptocarpus 'Crystal Ice' (PBR) & ceramic pot cover

streptocarpus in a ceramic gift pot

RHS award of garden merit
11cm ceramic pot £24.99

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil or fibre-based compost if grown indoors
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: usually throughout the year
  • Hardiness: tender (will need to be overwintered indoors, or in a shaded greenhouse)

    The first-ever continuously flowering streptocarpus. This is a very floriferous variety with medium-sized small white flowers. The lower three lobes are covered with fine deep blue veins. The narrow, lance-shaped leaves form a very attractive rosette, making Crystal Ice an exceptionally beautiful plant. Grown for their showy flowers, these tender perennials make superb houseplants. They will flower from mid-spring to mid-autumn and tend to bloom more prolifically when slightly pot-bound. Supplied in a white glazed ceramic pot, which offers an immediate and attractive way to display it in your home.

  • Home care: Water regularly during the growing season, allowing the compost to get a little dry in between; during this time they should also be fed with a high potash fertiliser. Overwinter in a shaded greenhouse, or indoors on a south or west-facing windowsill, watering less often. Repot each spring into a slightly larger, shallow pot filled with fibre-based compost. They can also be used as summer bedding - grow in fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil in partial shade.
