Back to Plant list

This is a beautiful flower which continually flower all the time it is growing. It prefers a neutral to acidic soil. It is very tender and can suddenly start to die if the temperature drops below about 7 degrees C although it will stand short periods close to freezing. It is in continual growth and needs to be kept slightly moist in winter. If it dries out it tends to drop its leaves. It can be trained into any shape and in the tropics it is often used as a hedge, which when in full flower is spectacular.
