Why Orange Shrimp Plant?
Offering exotic color and fragrant blooms, the Orange Shrimp Plant is a rare selection with an especially unique combination of orange and pink, not commonly seen in residential landscapes.
The Orange Shrimp Plant is a tropical perennial that will have your neighbors talking. Its flowers grow in a tubular silhouette, with orange and pinkish-red color delivered by 8-inch soft spikes. And the best part is that these showy hues thrive in warmer climates outdoor, in sunny areas on your porch or patio, or even by bright window light indoors. So, this conversation piece plant is distinctive, versatile, and adaptable, especially when its multi-stalked, textural trunk.

Planting & Care
Once you’ve selected a location (or your container, which should be twice the size of the shipped container), dig a hole that’s around twice the size of your plant’s root ball and just as deep, with a bit of extra room to grow. Then, place the tree, tamp down the soil and water to settle the roots.
When planting the Orange Shrmip in a container, ensure it has drainage holes and use organic soil mix. Then, place in a sunny area on your porch, patio or indoors.
2. Watering: We recommend watering young plants twice weekly or checking your soil. Generally, you should check your soil about 2 to 3 inches down for dryness – if the soil is dry here, water your plant.
3. Pruning: Simply remove any damaged or dead foliage and spent blooms to encourage growth.

Customer Reviews & Photos
The tree came well packed and in very good condition. Watered it the day I received it, planted it the next morning. Within one week it was putting out new growth even on the branch that was cut back. I have ordered other plants in the past all are growing well. I am very pleased with all my orders. I will order more as soon as I figure what I want and where to put it. A great company to do business with.
well received and waiting to see it bloom.
