About Cara

Cara frankly doesn't often get the credit she deserves, however her bronze-tinged leaves that arch and curl in the wind are a brilliant plant for providing year-round interest in your space as they retain their colour throughout the seasons and look wondeful intermixed with more colourful flowering plants.


Current height including plastic pot: 25-30cm
Maximum height: 60-80cm 


Cara is pretty easy going all round and will be happy in full sun or a mixture of sun and shade. 


Cara isn't wild about strong, cold winds so keep her sheltered from them in the winter.

Looking after this plant 

Give the leaves a good trim in the spring.

Living with pets and children

Non-toxic, in fact cats love to nibble on her as a mid-afternoon snack.
