Moderate to fast-growing tropical evergreen shrub with an upright growth-habit to 6-8’ tall x 3-5’ wide. Can be pruned to maintain a smaller size or trained as a small single-trunk patio tree. This attractive long-blooming variety features lush glossy foliage and is prized for its showy iridescent single golden-orange flowers with deep-rosy-pink centers. Blooming occurs throughout the warmer months attracting butterflies and bees. Well-suited as a large flowering accent foundation or hedge planting and does well in containers allowing it to be relocated and overwintered during the frost periods of colder climates. Prefers a well-drained soil with regular watering. Full to partial sun.
