Cestrum fasciculatum 'Newellii', 9 seeds
This incredibly beautiful shrub from Mexico is becoming increasing popular among gardeners who want a pest-free, self-cleaning, almost ever-blooming and ornamental plant. Each individual, tubular, raspberry red bloom of Cestrum fasciculatum is very small and delicate, but the clusters are huge and numerous so a plant is full bloom is quite an awesome sight. 'Newellii' is a dwarf variety that can even do well in pots/tubs, and will bloom even while the plant is still small (compared to other Cestrums). Attracts hummingbirds and butterflies. These are followed by attractive, satiny purple berries. Green, lanceolate to oval leaves. Hardy from zone 8 onwards. 8 feet tall, 6 feet wide but can be kept much smaller by severe pruning. Full sun to part shade. Well-drained soil. Drought-tolerant when established. Usually available in cuttings/plant form. Exclusive fresh seeds, harvested 08/2017.
