Pendulous flowers with straight corolla tube, dusky reddish-pink with pink lobes. It has a strong resemblance to 'African Queen' ('Indian Chief') but has a different flower colour and the broader leaves inherited from 'Yellow Trumpet'.

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.

From stem cuttings or rooted suckers.
