"Sacred Flower of the Andes"
Brilliant magenta flowers cover this amazing evergreen shrub in Spring and intermittently throughout the year. Hardy to 20 degrees F with pretty bright green foliage, it grows quickly to a multibranching 6’x6’. The 3” long flaring trumpets are held in clusters of twelve or more and display bright blue pollen on the stamens. Adored by hummingbirds! Can be pruned to a shorter size and grown in a large container (15 gal. or larger) or espaliered. It enjoys rich soil (tolerates worse) and a sunny sheltered spot. Native to the Andes. Does not fair well in hot and humid climates.
