Hanging baskets bloom in late winter and spring and become masterpieces of immense beauty and color. The flowers are over 7” in diameter and radiate tones of pink and orange in a dazzling display of color. Like all in this genus, they're easy-to-grow and forgiving of neglectful watering, but remember to give cool nighttime temperatures during the winter to initiate flowering.
