ADROMISCHUS PHILLIPSIAE (Marloth) Poelln.
Section: 3 Brevipedunculati




DISTRIBUTION
Roggeveldberge, S. Bushmanland mountain slopes, widespread individuals.

CHARACTERS
More robust than A. humilis and fallax, with stouter stems.

Outstanding florally - it is the only bird-pollinated
Adromischus with lovely red, pendant flowers, some with orange centres.

CULTIVATION
It needs sufficient water in summer to enable growth of very stout, tall inflorescences. Feed and repot regularly.

COMMENTS
Leaves can be plain light green or mottled red, much enhanced in summer sunshine.
