|Fast growing, evergreen or semi-evergreen shrub reaching up to 8 feet. Leaves are narrowly oval, bright green to 1.5 inches long. Grown for showy, pendent, bell-shaped flowers in apricot-yellow with purple stamens protruding from red calyces. Blooms from summer to fall. This plant was a favorite of Victorians, growing well in bright conservatories and relocated outside in containers during warmer months. Whiteflies, spider mites, scale insects and and mealy bugs may be a problem. May be grown outside year round in frost-free areas or against warm wall or protected space in marginal areas. Use in shrub border, container garden, or as espalier.
