Gardeners' Notes:

Positive spadyx On Aug 2, 2013, spadyx from Milwaukee, WI wrote:

This plant is best displayed if it is kept trimmed (in spring) and the swollen lower stems are allowed to develop. It will bloom in the winter with orange to scarlet blooms. Without trimming, it will tend to become leggy and unattractive.
