Dictamnus albus purpureus gas plant

Dictamnus albus purpureus
(gas plant)

Dictamnus albus purpureus is rarely seen in gardens. Dictamnus albus purpureus (gas plant) is very long lived perennial and it provides nectar and a host for butterflies. Dictamnus albus purpureus grows to a bushy, upright clump with glossy green leaves. Even after flowering the exquisite foliage looks great all season. Flowers spikes rise above the foliage with clusters of pink and dark purple veined flowers. The leaves may irritate the skin, be careful and wear gloves.

As the 2017 Destination Garden Centre of the Year, we have been growing and selling hardy, unique and hard-to-find perennials organically for over 12 years. We are always trialing and testing them in the botanical gardens at Plant Paradise Country Gardens. Our growing practices benefit the whole environment, including the pollinators and beneficial insects.

At Plant Paradise Country Gardens we control every aspect of growing plants on-site. This begins with mixing soil in the potting shed and all the steps in between until the fully grown plants are ready for your garden. This gives us the opportunity to have control over the quality. Our responsibility is to grow healthy plants that are environmentally sustainable. We use only organic gardening methods to grow high quality plants without the use of pesticides, herbicides and synthetic fertilizers. Our plants are available in one, two or three gallon containers.

We DO NOT use NeoNicotinoids which is a pesticide used by many plant nurseries that sell to garden centres and big box stores. This pesticide is a known cause of the decline in the bee population. Everything a grower uses in plant production is systemically released into the molecular structure of the plant. This becomes a chain reaction in the long-term health and vibrancy of the plant and your growing environment.

By supporting our environmentally sustainable organic perennial nursery u0026amp; garden centre you’ll be a part of the positive change that makes a difference in our environment. We believe you’ll see the difference.
