Comments: When indoors over winter, keep at about 50-55 degrees F. at night and 5-10 degrees F. warmer during the day. Prune in late winter or early spring. The showy white calyces with dark red corolla make this plant a show stopper. Needs some type of support to grow on. Blooms over an extended period when conditions are favorable.
