Growing into a large mound of leaves and flowers, give this plant space to develop.  It is very fast growing and will bloom well it's first season.  Rich, deep soil and adequate water is greatly appreciated.  When established it will survive temperatures to at least 25 degrees, and likely even a few degrees lower.

Many thanks to Nancy Newfield of Casa Colibrí in Metairie, Louisiana for our original stock of this plant.
