This is a great filler shrub, the flowers are plentiful and a deep rich color. On the negative side despite all my efforts to weed out the literally hundreds of volunteer seedlings I just couldn't keep up pulling them all out. (these all from a solitary bush planted in 2010). It also seemed to really like my poor soil and grew well over 5' in some areas when it was only supposed to reach 3', so it really messed up my garden plans.

Very nice flower and also often seen in wild. It can reach 1.5 m or more. Seeds are tiny black and shiny.Very common in Mauritius and sometimes even considered as weed.

This plant is very nice, and keeps blooming all summer long. New flowerheads will spring from the stem under the first flower. Some of my plants have four or five different flower heads. There are a lot of seeds produced by these plants. It also handles heat/drought better, as the flowers don't droop.
