Crossandra, also known as Firecracker Flower, blooms from April till the first freeze when growing outdoors and can also be grown as an indoor plant. The peachy, orange color is a bright spot in your summer plantings and containers but then in the fall can be paired with your fall favorites – mums, crotons and snap dragons.
This versatile plant grows in full sun outdoors in well-drained soil. When grown indoors give it as much bright light as possible – a sunny window or under a bright light. Water when the soil feels dry.
