Hardy / Thalia Red Stem

Thalia Red Stem
Thalia geniculata ruminoides

Hardy Plant Bloody Dock

Growing in swamps and wet ditches of Florida, this is a spectacular specimen plant for the pond or bog. Must stay constantly wet. Besides the huge striking lime green tropical leaves, the contrasting bright red stems in an architectural overlap makes this a focal point. Then the coup de gras: long arching flower spikes of lavender-blue add to its beauty.
