This elegant flower comes from dry hill valleys in South america and is best expanded against a warm walls with protection from cold gusts of wind and snow. Slimmer arises are installed with fancy, lantern-shaped blossoms that appear over a long period. It is also an ideal flower for a awesome sunroom or for growing in a tub that can be introduced under cover during the cold months months period. They are easily spread from summer season clippings, and this a sensible insurance against winter period harm, especially since the plants can be short-lived.
