Stars Of India

Great for Planters
Achimenes is known commonly by several names, Orchid Pansy, Hot Water Plant, and of course, Star of India. First cultivated in the 1700s, Star of India was popular in Victorian England as a potted plant, and its charming blooms are still an excellent option for container gardening. You can show them off in hanging baskets. You can also use it to add color and life indoors, this variety is especially nice for indoor displays, because it prefers part to full shade. Outside the planter, they do well as a mid- to late-summer color pop in shady borders. Enjoy a mix of bright colors--pink, red, purple and blue look lovely overtop dark green foliage. Achimenes
