Heliotropium Marine Seeds

The variety Heliotropium Marine is a popular variety of purple flowering Heliotropium. This majestic variety of Heliotropium produces large (up to 150mm wide) purple-violet flower heads throughout the warmer months and when it is not flowering the ornate purple-pearl tinged leaves provide an elegant touch of texture to any landscape. Most of all, the brilliant floral displays are set-off by a delightful vanilla fragrance that intensifies in the evenings, providing a nice addition to gardens that are close to entertainment area, garden paths and other areas around the house and garden. Like most Heliotropium varieties, the variety Heliotropium Marine is frost-tender, therefore should only be planted after the last frosts in very cold areas frost prone regions such as those in southern Australia.
