The party never stops with this miniature tropical carnival - in your garden beds or in your lounge room!  The peach-orange colour is a wow, and those flowers appear through the year, glowing against glossy leaves. 

This plant stopped our nursery manager in her tracks - and normally she only brakes for topiary. So you know it's going to be a showstopper in your garden. Turn the music up!
