Crossandra


Crossandra infundibuliformis 'Orange Marmalade'

Crossandra

Grow this underused and underappreciated tropical plant and you're sure to get lots of questions -- and compliments! It's a great performer in hot, sunny spots. It produces clusters of frilly orange or yellow flowers all season and shiny, dark green leaves. When frost threatens, you can bring it indoors and grow it as a houseplant, too, where it will flower on and off all year if it gets enough light.
