Suckering shrub of bushy habit with bright green foliage and panicles of pendulous, rich cherry-red tubular flowers in summer. Semi-evergreen in mild climates.

Best in moist, well drained, fertile soil in full sun but tolerant of a range of conditions. Top growth may be damaged by hard frosts and in any case, in cool climates, it is best cut back hard at the end of the season or in early spring.
Trim or pinch back to keep bushy.

From stem cuttings or rooted suckers.
