APHELANDRA SINCLAIRIANA
Panama Queen

Aphelandra sinclairiana, also known as an orange shrimp plant, is a tall shrub, sometimes reaching up to 10' high, but normally it is kept smaller (around 3'-4') by trimming. Cut back in the spring to prevent it from becoming too leggy. It prefers filtered light, average moisture, and fertilizer.
Even though it blooms in the winter, it is also very cold sensitive even though if can survive temperatures in the low 30's for short periods of time. It is better to avoid temperatures below 50's F.
During the winter, large/tall (up to 8"long!) beautiful orange/coral bracts will form on top of the plant and pink flowers will emerge. Very unusual and exotic looking flower!
