Gardeners' Notes:

This unusual shrub is a wonderful addition to any yard. Blooms of Yellow Orange only last one day but are plentiful and beautiful. Cold Hardy and heat hardy (Tampa, FL) we have had no issues with pests or disease. Easy to propagate from cuttings. The only thing it doesn't like is too much water!
