This is a neatly rounded, erect, small shrub that grows up to about 400 x 500 mm. The leaves are paired, free or slightly fused at the base, dark green and grow to 50 mm. The most attractive aspect of the plant is its unbelievably bright orange coloured flowers. These plants are best suited for winter rainfall areas where hot summers are experienced. The plants do not thrive in areas that are subject to prolonged periods of frost. They can withstand drought very well and do not need much care. To enjoy the best results from plants one can use them either in small groups directly in the garden or in window boxes and small containers in sunny spots.
