    My Justicia brandegeeana is flowering again, 11 years old from a cutting from Nairobi.
    Not the same as the commercial Shrimp plant as the flowers are red and upright but I can't find a specific name for it.

      That red boogie looks like very large flowered, or is that down to the camera angle.

          I bought this Polyscias scutellaria Balfourii for half price because it was in poor condition. The garden centre keeper told me all the ones they had in had died except this one.
          It isn't too bad and I can see lots of new shoots sprouting from the base so I am hopeful.

                First time I've had a flower for a year or so, actually have a couple of these. They definitely did better in Essex for me.

                    Mine bloom every year, mostly pushed to the back in the green house, only watered occasionally and rarely fed.

                        Yes, I'm afraid they get forgotten mostly.
                        Even got one in the cold frame.
