- Crossandra adds a bit of the exotic with its tropical flair. Frilly bright orange flowers show off in clusters on stems extending above glossy foliage.
- Add bold color and texture to any flower bed by using 1.00 QT Monrovia items as an accent to perennials and shrubs in your landscape. Quart Monrovia items are also great for bordering walkways, flower beds, or planting in your own containers.
- It's right at home in tropical-like heat and humidity. It likes full sun and rich soil that is moist and well-drained. Don't let it dry out.
- Water plants often the first year. Once established, water one time per week.
- Part sun plants tolerate 3-6 hours of morning sun per day.
