A very unusual plant to put outside but that's where we've had it!It's best planted out in the ground or kept in a pot in a cold glasshouse. If the root freezes it will die but it'll be okay in the ground. Largeish deepest-green leaves make a low growing mound of foliage held on reddish stems. The leaves have a slightly red tint and are elongated on this species. The flowers are produced in masses from the stem terminals. These are bright yellow shaped like lobster-claws! Unlike omieana also listed here, this species doesn't run underground and instead makes solid clumps.
