|Fast growing, evergreen shrub with narrowly ovate, bright green leaves with 3 long-pointed lobes to 5 inches long. Grown for showy, pendent, bell-shaped flowers, dark apricot with red inside the bases and dusk-pink calyces. Blooms 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.
