Lipstick Plant

We are all familiar with ivy, ferns, philodendrons, cactus, etc. The Lipstick Plant is less common. It is from the damp forests of the West Indies and the Rain Forests of South America. It is related to African Violets and Cape Primroses. The tube shaped bright flowers (that come in a variety of reds) resemble a tube of lipstick. The blooms hang down and will continue off and on through the year. This stunning plant does best in hanging baskets. The staff at The Holly Berry will instruct you on the best care of the Lipstick Plant to insure that it provides you with years of beautiful blooms.
