Pack of 75 seeds.

Typical plants are evergreen perennial sub-shrub that grow up to 1 m tall and have pale gray stems. The Leaves are arranged oppositely on the stems and are lance shaped.

The flowers are in clusters with 10-20 flowers each. The flowers have corollas that are purple or red and corona lobes that are yellow or orange. The 5 to 10 cm long, fusiform shaped fruits are called follicles. The follicles contain tan to brown seeds that are ovate in shape and 6-7 mm long. The plants flower nearly year round.  They have a milky sap like most members of the genus. The flat seeds have silky hairs that allow the seeds to float on air currents when the pod-like follicles split open.

Hardy in Zone 8 and up, they can also be grown as an annual where there are no overwintering facilities.
