Fleshy, curly leaves twist around trailing stems, making this a worthwhile houseplant for its foliage alone - but it also rewards with beautiful flowers in summer! These tubular flowers, offset by a dark calyx, emerge from the ends of the shoots, their bright scarlet colour contrasting beautifully against the deep green leaves. Aeschynanthus 'Twister' will instantly add interest to a dull corner or shelf, where its vivid flowers can be appreciated at eye level bringing the tropical ambience of its native South Asia into your home. Eventual height: 30cm (12in). Spread: 80cm (31in).
