This plant is a houseplant in my zone 5. I have found the best success of getting it to rebloom is to take a cutting and grow it under lights. The mother plant grows but is reluctant to put forth flowers.

Extremely easy to root from stem or tip cuttings. Tolerant of dry indoor conditions. Available in several flower colors including yellow, red, pink, and white.

These are so hardy; lovely red with dark leaves that stand out in the garden.
