Monvillea Spegazzini Cristata
This easy to grow plant is very attractive because of its spectacular purple-blue stems with pronounced sculpture effects. There also a similar crested form with blue-green marbled stems. These crested stems seem carved and are often crowned with a white down. Huge red flowers on the outside, white inside opening at night.
A fast growing species which flourishes in a mixed, well-drained soil. This plant needs regular watering during summers and should be kept dry during winters and requires light shade to grow better
It is an excellent plant for garden rockery settings, desert type landscapes, patios and botanical gardens
