- 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.
- Premium quality, bold, colorful annuals perfect for planting in flower beds to compliment perennials and shrubs. Also great when making your own container combination.
- 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.
