Product Description

Molucella Laevis has lovely apple green bracts of bell-like appearance held on 60cm tall upright stems. It acts as a foil to flowers, giving texture & form and adding interest.

It is great for cut flower use and for drying. It is however a little temperamental and needs a bit of care to help with germination which can be erratic but well worth the extra attention.
