The interesting flowers of this popular tropical shrub are often considered a nature's work of art. Unique exotic orange blooms are often described as a bird in flight, as a colorful crane's head, or even a sunbird drinking water. The slow growing plant forms a clumping habit with thick gray green leaves upon graceful upright stems. Best with partial sun to partial shade, consistently moist soil and high humidity. Grows to be about 4 ft. tall at maturity, extending to 5 ft. when in bloom, with a 3 ft. W spread. An outstanding tropical accent usually used as a dramatic focal point, where it can show off its unusual form and beauty. A fine choice for the garden and outdoor patio pots, where it is often used as the "thriller" in a thriller-spiller-filler container planting.
