Description

Thalia dealbata, also known as alligator flag, is a bog to aquatic plant growing on the banks of creeks and rivers in southern states. The plant is? hardy to zone 6 or more. The leaves resemble a canna leaf large, green and spear shaped held on top of tall petioles 3 to 4 feet. The flowers are held high on a tall stem and are small and purple. If looked at closely the flowers look a bit like an orchid. Another odd fact about the flower is it’s amazing way of pollinating. If an insect enters the flower and touches the stigma it causes the staminoid or a small arm like structure to release it’s tension hitting the insect with pollen. Sometimes trapping the insect and killing them.

Plants will be bare rooted cuttings.
