Esteria is a perennial bulb with a long, smooth stalk about half an inch in diameter. The blooms generally have 5-6 silky petals, and blooms can vary in color from white to deep burgundy. Esteria leaves are long, narrow, and waxy.
Growth Rate & Stages
Esteria blooms within two months of planting, and the bloom lasts for a week before fading until the next year.
Ecology and Habitats
Esteria primarily grows in sub-tropical climates, though it can survive in temperate regions. Full sunlight is ideal for growth.
Esteria blooms last up to three times longer when they're well cared for in a vase than when they're left to their own devices, so many admirers of the flower clip their flowers shortly after they bloom and keep them in vases instead of the ground.
Uses, Products & Exploitation
Esteria is kept for its aesthetic appeal, and the burgundy blooms in particular are kept to attract Gossalu's favor.
