Drape over walls or let it cascade off retaining walls. Add to wildlife friendly settings for increased hummingbird draw.

CARE
Care Easily grown in lean, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Keep slightly dry and feed sparingly to stimulate flowering; avoid high nitrogen fertilizers. Provide trellis or arbor support. Prune annually to control size. Sap may irritate skin.
HISTORY
Lore Discovered in 1998 by Monrovia Growers' Propagation Manager Andrew Proud, growing wild on Balboa Island, California. Large clusters of tubular shaped flowers in velvety red with hues of orange remind one of a tropical sunset. This easy-to-grow selection of the native southeast species is also very attractive to hummingbirds.
