Product Description

An unusual and exotic plant to add a little tropical excitement to your pots and displays this year.

A plant of many names, Beloperone (as it's now called) explodes with spikes of showy and rather unusual copper-red bracts, forming a cascade of flowers that resemble shrimps - hence its common name of the Shrimp Plant.

More commonly grown as a houseplant in the 70's under the name Justicia brandegeana, it's now enjoying a resurgence in popularity, mainly due to its gorgeous, drooping cascades of shrimp-like flower spikes.

Made up of heart-shaped, reddish brown or pink bracts, which almost conceal the creamy-white flowers, the flower spikes are produced continuously during the growing season, which can last for up to 10 months. As they mature, the bracts elongate, doubling in length, adding further to the cascading appearance of this exotic shrub.

A stunning addition to patio pots and containers, the shrimp plant is a frost tender perennial, so does best when sat in the sun outside through the summer when the flowers will get their best colour and then brought into your home to over winter as a house plant - a fabulous 2 in 1 plant!

Supplied as an established plant in a 15cm pot.

Plant Information

Top Tips

To get the best results from your Shrimp Plant, treat it as a patio plant in the summer and a houseplant in the winter.

Care Guide

  • Keep well-watered through the summer and water only when the soil is dry in the winter.
  • The shrimp plant tends to become rather leggy over time so needs a yearly trim to keep it tidy - you can cut it down by half in February-March just as the plant is about to start back into growth.
  • Any straggly or weak shoots can be removed entirely.
  • Periodic pinching out of stems will encourage branching and a bushy growth and so more flowers will be produced.
