This gorgeous plant certainly lives up to its name, with glossy green foliage setting off vibrant orange flowers. The blooms are continuous from Spring to Autumn, making this an ideal indoor flowering houseplant or a bright addition to a patio or deck area.
Crossandra has been bred for its heat tolerance but is also happy in part shade. Allow the plant to dry out before watering, and fertilise regularly.
Crossandra Fireglow is available now from your local nursery or hardware store. It will be hard to miss and will make a bold statement, either in your garden or inside your home.
