Ionantha is from the Greek 'Ion' meaning purple, and 'Anthos' which means flower. When the ionantha's come into their flowering process they color up really well turning fiery red, and then will produce the lovely purple, tubular flowers, then they will produce pups or offsets around the base which will grow and flower again when they reach maturity which is generally on year.
There are many many sub-species and varieties of ionantha, which makes them very collectible. They are very popular due to their ease of growing, vibrant display and the fact that they are so versatile.
Here is a lovely selection of 5 different ionantha's.
I am so pleased with my air plants collection. They arrived very quickly and were very healthy. Many thanks Andy !
I received 5 very healthy looking plants, they were all larger than my first air plant that I bought at a garden centre, much better value and there was far more choice at Andy's Air Plants. Andy included a thorough sheet of instructions with the plants. I'm very happy with my purchase and will definitely be buying more plants from Andy's Air Plants.
