Justicia carnea
The Brazilian plume flower or jacobinia (Justicia carnea), a member of the broad Acanthaceae family is a shade-loving, soft-wooded shrub (ht 1.5m) with large, lush leaves. Thick plumes of white, pale pink or deep pink tubular flowers appear in regular flushes from early summer to late autumn.

It needs hard pruning in late winter, and regular dead-heading during summer will help to promote new blooms. It will also flourish in sunny spots but is useful for shaded sites, as are so many of the Acanthaceae family, which do so well in the Sydney climate.

Whilst it will stand neglect, it responds well to feeding and watering. It is easily propagated from cuttings and is a good companion to hydrangeas, Plectranthus species, ferns and camellias.

    Gorgeous… Love the pov as it gives a 3D effect to the image…

  • I think it was the 3D effect that decided me to put up this rather than one in full bloom … thank you for your comments, on one of my Summer favourites!

    I agree with Bootie. The image almost explodes out of the frame. Good one, Trish.

  • Thank you for your comments Gary, it’s one of my Summer favourites and I agree with both of you on the 3D / explode descriptions. Thank you!
