General Information

Planted as an exotic ornamental for its amazing flowers. Oddly this plant is still quite uncommon in cultivation, rarely offered for sale and seen only in a small collection of botanical gardens.

Cultivation: The plant loves a cooler subtropical or warm temperate environment. It does well in fog zones and wet areas. Provide regular water in drier zones. Grow in full or part shade. Plant in moist, well-draining soil. Hardy to 25F, but only for brief periods of time

Propagation: By seeds
