Jacobinia, or Justicia, is a beautiful, tropical, upright growing, flowering, evergreen shrub with large, dark green leaves and stunning, slightly scented, pink to crimson tubular flowers that grow in clusters that resemble fireworks. It blooms from spring to fall and is attractive to bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. Jacobinia can be grown in various types of soil, but prefers fertile, hummus-rich, moist and well-drained soils, in partial shade. It needs consistent moisture, but doesn’t like soggy soils. Once established, it can tolerate some drought. It thrives in tropical and sub-tropical areas. It is generally, disease-free. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require pruning. Jacobinia is a wonderful, long-blooming, tropical plant, easy to grow in tropical areas and in containers. It is perfect for Mediterranean gardens. Great as a foundation plant in shady spots, or as a low flowering hedge. Excellent for beds and borders, and as a houseplant.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
