Info

Exotic, epiphytic, blueberry relation from China with gorgeous, red, heavily veined flowers dangling all along the undersides of arching stems for a long period in spring. Evergreen, the new foliage emerges red creating texture and contrast along branches that emerge from a caudex-like base, eventually reaching up to 3-5' long. Perhaps best kept in a container for its hardiness -- to 22 °F or so -- as well as to show off the weeping form, particularly handsome at eye level. Prefers moist, well-drained soil and protection from hot afternoon sun. Tolerates more sun in coastal areas. Cold hardy in USDA zones 9-10.

Info

This flamboyant Blueberry relative is almost hardy our area but is an easy and dramatic attention-getter in a pot, We keep ours in the cool greenhouse over winter but will do fine inside or if you are annoyingly mild like West Seattle, just bring in during hard freezes. 1" red tubular flowers.
