Wigandia are perennial, woody, tall shrubs within the viper's gloss family (Boraginaceae) and are native to South America. They have most ornamental, very large, densely hairy oval leaves and elongating racemes with numerous pale lilac flowers with a white throat. Easily grown in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot throughout the year. In colder areas keep slightly drier and frostfree in winter at a minimum of some 15°C in full sun.
Sow dustlike seed on top of any rich, well drained substrate at some 20°C to 30°C throughout the year. Do not cover seeds with soil. Keep pots always slightly moist from below and transplant seedlings to larger pots with their fifth pair of leaves. Especially seedlings require plenty of light.
