Absolutely magnificent plant. It grows incredibly well in Cape Town, South Africa (Mediterranean climate). As far as I know it is indigenous to SA, but not sure which region. Cuttings root very easily and within a few months the bush is flowering. Likes shade but otherwise very undemanding and flowers on and off for many months of the year. Very good for growing in pots.
