The flowers are attractive, curved and tubular, between 18 and 26 mm long. They are shiny and semi-translucent, normally pink to orange. Sowing: Seeds should be sown in late summer or autumn. Germination is greatly enhanced by the application of smoke which mimics the conditions in nature. Seed is sown onto a well-drained, slightly acidic growing medium consisting of a combination of river sand and well decomposed pine bark in roughly equal proportions. Seed germinates in about six weeks. Locality: Ex Hort. Harvest: July 2023
