Another of the spring-blooming Quesnelias, but this one looks completely different! Quesnelia liboniana has rigid, erect foliage that is plain green in color and a single plant only produces 3 to 4 leaves before flowering. The leaves grow about 18" tall (24" in shadier spots) and in the spring a vivid orange and blue flower spike emerges.
The colorful portion of the flower spike is about 4 to 6 inches in height and is held above the foliage for maximum visibility. These plants are cold hardy into the mid 20° F range. Offsets are produced on stolons, which quickly fill a pot and creep over the sides.
Due to its comparatively small size, this Quesnelia can easily be grown in a 6" pot and moved around when blooming for increased enjoyment!
Plants will grow in nearly full sun to mostly shade, developing lighter green leaves in more light.
