Soft orange flowers are 30 mm long and tubular, from June-August (may vary) here, on medium green foliage. May need staking while young. 2-3 or higher by 18-24 wide. Found near water in the wild. It is a Cape Heath from South Africa. Wildly floriferous! Therefore, only hardy to about 28 degrees F. We grow them successfully in the greenhouses here in Western Washington with no heat. In the odd very cold spell, we take them into a more protected facility. Needs an acid soil mix.
