I grow many of these plants as annuals here in Michigan and they are fantastic. They bloom continuously up to frost and I even have some in full sun and they are fine. I only wish I had more room in the house to overwinter them.

It can only be grown as a houseplant in our zone. During the summer I keep it on the porch where it gets afternoon sun, water often and fertilize once a month. During the winter it must be protected from low temperatures.

Dragonwing is in full bloom Jan. 16, 2005 in plastic pot. It blooms year round; overwintered in greenhouse.

It has lovely green leaves, not bronze leaves which takes more sun.
Bloom color is baby pink, about dime size. When Dragonwing becomes too leggy, I prune back & dip cuttings into rooting hormone then add to mother plant or make a new plant in smaller pot.

Plant is suitable for growing as houseplant or outside. Plant in part sun to shade 24" apart . It grows 12-15 " tall. It is great in containers or beds. It has average water needs. Do not overwater which causes stems to rot. Feed weekly while in bloom.
Beautiful year-round green foliage with plentiful, soft pink blooms.
