Description:

A terrific tropical shrub to use in pots on patios, or feature in entryways. Bright rosy-pink to salmon-colored flower-like bracts are sure to garner attention with their unique shrimp-like appearance. Requires little care other than occasional trimming. A frost-tender evergreen that will bloom nearly year-round in warmer winter regions.

Botanical Name: Justicia brandegeana
Deciduous/ Evergreen: Evergreen
Growth Rate: Fast
Special Feature: Clump Forming, Easy Care, Gift Plant, Tolerates Poor Soils
Foliage Color: Green
Flower Attribute: Showy Flowers
Bloom Time: Summer; blooms nearly year-round in warm winter areas.
Flower Color: White
Garden Style: Tropical
Design Ideas: This is a great semi-tropical plant for sheltered locations and on the coast. Makes fine foundation planting under arbors and awnings. Ideal for courtyards and even atriums, but also does well out in the garden, where its drooping flower heads nod and sway in the breeze. Plant near a spa to enjoy its unique prawn-like bracts and hidden flowers up close.

Provide humus-rich, evenly moist, well-drained soil. Best flower color with part shade, particularly in hotter regions; shelter from harsh afternoon sun exposures. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a formal appearance, prune annually after flowering.
