Glossy green foliage with arching spikes of wonderful large coral-purple trumpet flowers with yellow inners from late May often continuing into autumn. A very compact form with pale green leaves, branching habit and frost hardy. A multi use plant for patio containers and border plantings.

Soil Requirements : Will tolerate most soil types. Moist but well drained fertile soils for best results. Drought resistant once established.

Pruning : Remove faded flower stems to encourage re-flowering. Prune when required to keep a tidy plant. In milder areas prune lightly to retain framework or cut back to the base in spring.
