Moussonia elegans 4" pot

Lovely red and orange tubular flowers related to African Violets.  This is a very easy plant with upright stems covered with silky soft leaves like kitten's ears.  The flowers are bright and beautiful and attracts hummingbirds.  Easy to grow as long as it gets a lot of water in the summer!  

Native to high altitudes in Mexico, I suspect it wouldn't like excessive heat, but haven't tested it.  It should do well in the house as long as you have room!
