Roscoea Red Gurka (Roscoea purpurea)

Didn't realise I've had this Roscoea 2 years now, was hoping for more of these large red flowers.

Love the lush green leaves, Siris. Hopefully you’ll have some more of these hot red exotic flowers!

Mine has struggled this year too. It hasn't liked the weather has it?

Andrew, yours flowered much earlier than mine. Mine is in too sunny/dry position, I've needed to water, must move somewhere more suitable. In contrast the tiny pink scillifolia has sprouted and flowered in abundance.

I had to get rid of scillifolia as it was self-sowing everywhere. I've still got seedlings coming up

I have to say I like the pink scillifolia, tried to grow the black one from seed, but none came up.
