Tropical medicinal perennial plant.  Easy to grow from cuttings.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade or light shade location.  Orange red flowers are quite showy!  USDA Zones:7-11.  Mature size:2.5M(H) if growing in warm climate in ground.  But this plant has been propagate by stem cuttings and used leaves often so I never heard anyone grow it to mature size.

熱帶藥用多年生草花.  容易以扦插枝條來繁殖.  最好種在全日照到半日照或散光的環境.  橘紅色花相當獨特亮眼!  耐熱不甚耐寒.  成熟植株高度可達2.5公尺不過那是在溫暖氣候區地植放任生長的結果,倒沒聽說過能長那麼高大的.
