A little afternoon shade is perfect. Full sun if kept moist.

A good deep pink. The flowering is strong, reliable and long lasting.

Nursery Notes

Propagate by grafting.


Although the bracts are a good deep pink this can and does vary with sunlight, in which the colour can be somewhat lighter...but still beautiful. It is a strong grower and uniform in its branching, of which the young shoots can have an attractive purple reddish caste.
