Streptosolen jamesonii, the marmalade bush, is an evergreen shrub of the Solanaceae family that produces loose clusters of flowers gradually changing from yellow to red as they develop, resulting in an overall appearance resembling orange marmalade.
The plant produces an oil from its blossoms which is used for medicinal purposes. It is anti-inflammatory, fungicidal, and astringent. It soothes burns and raw chapped skin. It is used as a fixative in perfumes and has an intense fragrance. It is sometimes used as a spice.
We ship a robust, sun-grown plant, cultivated in a 14-18 cm pot, of variable height of 25-40 cm. This is a fast growing species and it is produced once or twice a year so the specimens can vary in size. We will always try to select a compact robust plant for you. We ship worldwide.
