Comments: This semi-tropical needs protection from frosts and freezes. Makes an excellent patio plant. Has several cycles of bloom from early spring through summer. Provide a fertile, well drained soil. Makes an excellent container plant. Is a real conversation piece because of the different colored flowers on the same plant. Grows best and blooms in sunny locations, especially those that receive morning sunlight.
