Whitfieldia elongata is a shade tolerant shrub from tropical Africa. In the garden it can attain a height of 4 to 6 feet tall. It can also be grown in a large container indoors and kept smaller than what is seen in the ground. This shrub has dark green glossy foliage which contrast nicely with the 4 to 6 inch flower spikes which rise above the foliage. The common name is attributed to the pure white flowers emerging from a pure white calyx.
Richard Lyons Nursery currently has this plant in stock.
