This plant originated in the Asia Pacific region and grows only in the tropics where it blooms all year. Large, terminal clusters of tiny, white, yellow, orange, rose, or scarlet flowers are produced. The flowers last well when picked and put into a vase with water. It is a fairly small, bushy shrub, usually only 5-10ft tall and is commonly used a hedge or small garden plant. The nectar from the flowers is particularly liked by the Ruby Topaz hummingbird.
