» Provides a profusion of brilliant orange-red flowers from Winter to Summer. Scrambling, evergreen shrub with leathery, heart-shaped leaves. Easy-to-grow ornamental shrub for gardens or containers. Also acts as a climber if given support. Grows well in a partly-shaded position in moist, well-drained soil. Prune after flowering to maintain compact growth. Cultivate soil before planting. Dig hole twice the width of the container. Remove plant from container and place into the hole so the soil level is the same as the surrounding ground. Fill hole firmly and water in well even if the soil is moist. © Norwood. Supplier: Kuranga Native Nursery. Status: Defunct.
