Bocconia Cordata ornamental hardy perennials


Bocconia Cordata ornamental hardy perennialsThe Bocconia Cordata are ornamental hardy perennials. They do best on a loamy soil, and may be increased by suckers taken from established plants in the summer and placed in rich soil; or by cuttings planted in sand, in a gentle heat under glass; also by seed sown during the autumn months.

They appear to the greatest advantage when grown as solitary plants, away from other tall-growing flowers. The variety Bocconia Frutescens has an exceedingly pretty foliage. August is the month in which they flower. Their height is about 6 feet.
