The Musical Note Plant

Record #:
Gartin describes the musical note plant, or Rotheca incisa. It can grow to four feet, but in the Carolinas in only reaches three feet. It takes its name from the fact that the buds are shaped like white quarter notes and when it blossoms it opens in the shape of herald trumpets. All the plant requires is a reasonable amount of sun and water and some all-purpose fertilizer. It flowers best when facing direct morning sunlight.
