Francoa sonchifolia-Chilean Bridal Wreath

Propagating Francoa or Bridal Wreath, which is hardy down to 20 degrees, is done by digging up the clump in the spring and dividing the crown into well rooted transplants. It is native to Chile and will take either full sun or partial shade, but performs best in cool settings, so no afternoon sun and is a slow grower. It is evergreen and deer resistant. It will bloom from June through to September, comes in either white or pink, and will eventually reach 24" in height.
