This is making a marvellous display!

It's a widely grown shrub here - and blooms all year. It's also very drought tolerant another reason for its popularity.

As you might have guessed, Del, I only get to see this in heated glasshouses here, but never saw one as good as this. Many Thanks for showing! :-))

You're very welcome. Glad you enjoyed the pic!

It commonly grows pretty quickly to 6 or 7 feet tall here.

David is right; I have only seen it under glass and they never look as good.

They must love growing outside in horribly, dry soil - like we have here. : > )
