Shrubby perennial. An outrageously spectacular form found near the Chiapas area of Mexico, it has extremely striking red and white bicoloured flowers; in the hotter months of summer it may have all red and all white flowers on the same plant due to the warmer night temperatures but when the night temperature drops in the autumn months, the flowers will return to their normal bicolour state. Very drought tolerant. Flowering period June – October. Hardy in most areas. Plant requires full sun and well drained soil. Height 50cm -1m. Spread 54cm.
