Thank everyone!

Yes, the flowers are beautiful but the
leaves for some reason are turning chlorotic.

I am going to try growing one of these this spring.

Mamagem:

The species I've posed is not readily available.
I purchased it at a specialty nursery which doens't
carry it anymore. Holmskioldia sanguinea is the
most common species available which is very pretty
also.

I believe the common one is the one I have seeds for. I hope it is even close to the beauty of this one.

Mamagem:

Holmskioldia sanguinea is a beautiful shrub also.
I'm sure it'll do well for you...however, they're very
tropical in origin and therefore, very tender to cool
or cold weather.

Also, it's a Fall and Winter flowering shrub.
