Red Barleria (Barleria repens)

December 9, 2016 Back to Picks >


Red Philippine Violet is a unique lush perennial groundcover for light shade gardens. This low mounding perennial (averaging 12″-16″ tall) produces small, round, glossy dark green leaves and is covered with eye-catching 1″ coral-red flowers late summer to fall and a scattering of bloom throughout the year. This root-hardy, sometimes evergreen perennial is tough and fast growing. Not only does it make an outstanding groundcover, but it’s gorgeous cascading over the edge of a container or spilling over a wall. Great hummingbird plant!
