Have maintained a plant in a semi large pot for a number of years. Growth tends to be somewhat leggy and stems want to sprawl. Haven't totally figured out optimum location for maximum consistent bloom yet.

This evergreen Peruvian shrub attracts hummers with its 2 long tubular dark red flowers, which appear from spring to fall (or longer). The dark green elliptic leaves are borne on with stems covered with silky hairs. It thrives in full sun to light shade and is drought-tolerant once established. Grows to about 3 tall x 3 wide.
