Originating from Australia
Who would have thought a combination of pink and yellow, usually avoided at all costs in the garden, could be pulled off with such aplomb? An extremely choice, and surprisingly hardy evergreen with reddish brown stems and dark green leaves producing clusters of tubular pink and yellow/green flowers. Grow it in a sheltered spot – against a south or west wall is ideal, and its flowers will brighten a winter’s day. As a conservatory plant it will flower throughout the year.
Grow in moist but well-drained soil in sun.
