I am unfamiliar with this plant, but after reading about it I would love to try it. It is native to Peru and is drought resistant. Take care not to overwater. This plant should fit well into a xeriscape. Peru is a pretty dry place.

Since it blooms continuously when there is enough light, and since it has red tubular flowers, it must be a magnet for butterflies & hummingbirds.
