Roscoea are robust herbaceous perennials in the ginger family. They are suitable for the front of borders, in a rock garden or grown in a container.
With orchid-like flowers in the summer they can be found in colours ranging from white and cream through pinks, brick reds and purples. They have tuberous, fleshy roots (similar in appearance to dahlia) that become dormant in late autumn, with strap shaped leaves from April onwards. The early varieties flower from May and the later varieties give colour until early September.
We despatch Roscoea tubers during March and April while dormant. They are sold as large flowering-sized tubers ready for planting out. They will be available to order on the website again from early 2022.
