Producing masses of bright red-orange trumpet flowers.
Perfect for those dry baked areas in the garden where you struggle to water. This plant will spread out so give it room but at the same time you are rewarded with bright trumpet flowers in mid-late summer. This plant benefits from a cut back occasionally to keep tidy.
In winter cut back down to the ground. The plant is totally deciduous. New shoots will appear in early Spring. Give it space to grow as will spread to a good sized clump.
