Sometimes called Firecracker Plant. A shade-loving, showy tropical plant native to Asia and Africa. Blooms nearly continuously with bright orange flowers along spear-shaped spikes above glossy, deep-green foliage. Can be planted outdoors or indoors, making a great container plant. Pest-resistant, but requires well-drained soil and grows vigorously so may require frequent repotting.
