Common Name: Golden Shrimp, Lollipop Plant, Golden Candles
Availabilty: In Stock
Not many plants can light a hold a candle to this little guy! The stunning Golden Candles plant is a striking evergreen shrub with large leafed cheery-green foliage and yellow candle-shaped flowers with baby white flower offshoots flowering through summer and autumn, or year round in tropical climates.
Fast growing and growing 1 - 3 metres high, and around 2 metres wide it is stunning for natural hedges, mixed beds, container planting, colour contrast, and indoor gardening (in bright indoor light). If living in cool locations, we recommend planting in a container and bringing indoors during cold weather, this sunny little guy doesn't like the cold!
The Golden Candle can handle pruning to maintain your desired shape, but most leave it to it's natural growth habit in the warmer months to get the most out of the stunning sea of upright yellow flowers and prune back hard after flowering. As they grow, they can get a little leggy, so most gardeners will underplant this beauty with even more colour for a stunning result.
Frost sensitive, humidity and wind tolerant. Most well drained soils. Can handle full sun, for best colour plant in partial shade, bright indoor light.
You are buying beautiful, happy tubestock with root systems that are sun-hardened (except for our indoor babies). Tubestock is the youngest plant you can buy, which helps to make it so affordable (so you can buy more PLANTS, woohoo!).
