Provide rich, well drained soil in full sun. Best with part shade in hot inland areas. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Fertilize regularly. Prune in late winter or early spring.

Clusters of scarlet tubular flowers resembling small firecrackers provide reliable color from spring through fall. Slender, rush-like stems start out erect, then fall over into long, showy cascades. A must-have for tropical butterfly gardens. Great for border, trained to trellis, or spilling out of containers. Loved by hummingbirds.
