Gardeners' Notes:

purchased in spring '08. i re-potted it in summer '08. it has gotten absolutely huge. it hangs in the branches of a red cedar and gets filtered sun for about a half day. i will have to re-pot it again as soon as the weather warms up. when the temps are predicted to go below 45, i hang it in the garage. if a frost is predicted, followed by extended cool temps., i bring it inside and set in an east facing window (my only sunny window).

Neutral Uladech On Nov 23, 2005, Uladech from (Zone 5a) wrote:

It is a hybrid of A. longicaulis and A. speciosus. First parent is responsible for the great foliage, second for the yellowish-red (orangey) flowers. It is easy mistaken for the A. longicaulis which has light green flowers.
