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.

They have a good range of plants I?ve had items from them years ago only problem is delivery the item was sent on a friday with Royal Mail we didn?t receive it until a week after on the Saturday plants don?t travel well after that time so a replacement is being sent hope Royal Mail are better with live plants as it says on the box in delivery
Product:
If had been with Royal Mail for a week looking at the plant when it arrived must of been in good condition when it left your garden that?s why I?ve rated this

I don’t like giving bad feedback on a product but it was damaged again and once I tried to save it it was infected with little black flies and stayed green them it just fell apart in my living room. I don’t want another one as maybe their not suited for here.
I appreciate not everything lives no reflection on the company which is excellent

Not a lot of contact didn?t know when my item was arriving.
Product:
A few of the flowers had fell off, the plant itself was very dry and shrivelled and the colour isn?t what I expected it?s very pale
YouGarden Comments
Thank you for providing feedback - we did send an automated email dispatch notification when the order was on its way so I'm sorry if you didn't receive this; it's handy as it includes a link to the courier's tracking details. Do check your Junk folder just in case it slipped in there. Should your plant not be as described or fail to flourish please do contact us directly via cs@yougarden.com and of course we'll do our best to put this right for you.
