Love this plant. I live in Zone 7a central Maryland, and grow it as a summer tropical, indoors in fall throught mid spring. One of the easiest plants to grow and bloom. Mine is in a 5 gallon pot and has been for over 10 years. Lots of sun, water and fert in summer.

Incredible one of a kind 3: pure orange tubular pod like flowers that open and look like they are sticking out their tongue , then the ends flare open to a nice scalloped shape.

I cut it back hard to the main trunks in fall to bring inside, I give it bright light and room temps and it remains in active growth, although slow all winter. Love it!
