This shrub is overwintered in a cool conservatory. It is a tough plant that can recover from being dried out. It is a good addition to any garden as it flowers continually all year round. The bright red of the flower contrast well with the dark green of the leaves. At every growing tip a flower appears. I plant it out in the late spring and dig it up in December and bring it inside. Apart from water and feed it needs little attention.
