Justicia brandegeeana is an old fashioned plant that has been widely grown in cottage gardens for many decades.  It has been in and out of fashion during this time and it has been grown here for that long that we no longer think of it as a tropical plant.  The bracts are a red or russett colour, they are reminiscent of a shrimp; the tubular flowers are white with red spots and they appear from spring through to autumn.  Light shade is best for this Justicia, as the flowers will last longer. It grows to around 1.2m high by 1m wide

Native to: Mexico
