Description of the plant

With the Melianthus, we take you into a whirlwind of scents and colors!

It is aptly named - "Melianthus" meaning the flower of honey - because its large floral stems give off a pleasant scent of honey. But your smell will also be titillated by its leaves, which exhale an odor between peanut butter and cocoa when crumpled.

It also offers a festival of colors, between its deep red-brown flowers and green decorative foliage with bluish metallic reflections.

The Honey flower is an easy to grow perenial tropical shrub, frost resistant, down to -7°C, and reach a wingspan of up to 3 meters. It is easy to maintain, is easily pruned and its masterful shape evokes that of a giant fern.
So, no more hesitation!
