This is one of the most beautyfull caudex plants of the Canary Islands. The branches can become very long (over 5meter) with a large number of flowers (diam. 6/7 cm and long 7/8cm) in the colours from yellow/orange upto deep red.
I have one plant (rised from seed) in my greenhouse, and for the moment the plant starts growing, sommer rest is finished and vegetation period starts untill march next year.
