Info

Beloved by hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies, this lush Central and South American member of the Potato family has a colorful allure nearly all year round. Arching stems coated with mahogany-colored fuzz showcase profuse nodding clusters of waxy, deep red tubular flowers and purplish red berries dramatically set amid burgundy-tinged leaves, which are soft as velvet and taper to a point. A tall-standing vigorous evergreen shrub well-suited for a container, 'Newellii' blooms summer through winter and in some instances much longer, appreciating a protected wall or overhang, a light or heavy pruning to maintain its shape, moderate moisture and where its warm, partial shade.

Info

Possibly a hybrid between C. fasciculatum x C. elegans. Though this plant looks tough, its colorful waxy flowers give away its tropical origins. The clusters of unscented crimson flowers appear almost year round in mild climates against dark evergreen foliage and each blossom looks the perfect shape for a hummingbird's slender bill. Mature plants generally have an upright form to 6'. Plant in full sun with regular garden water. Some texts warn that this plant may be considered a weed in mild climates. Hardy to 20F.
