Loving a shady moist well drained spot and growing to 1-8 meters, this plant puts on a spectacular show through the warmer months. With its flowers changing from brown to red and yellow as they age, and turning more red when they get either the early morning or late afternoon sun.
Proving to be very happy on the southern side of a fence this plant is also suited to a well lit, but shady patio or el-fresco area.
The flowers make a great addition to any indoor arrangement, but do to tend to look better for longer on the plant.
It is important not to not let the plant dry out over winter but not wet. but not wet during winter. Being too wet will result in the rhizome rotting. Cut back in early winter and fertilize in early spring.
