Product Details
This is a fabulous creeping perennial from Mexico. Stems run around the ground and root as they do forming mats of evergreen growth (if the winter is mild). Leaves are smallish with a point at the tip. From the leaf axils through the summer months are borne the scarlet-red flowers which are tubular with an open mouth. Light shade suits best and protection from severe cold.
