A dazzling addition to the early summer garden, when the tall stems, which are clothed in variegated yellow and green leaves, are topped with clusters of orange, bell-shaped flowers to 6cm in length. It looks great when woven through a sunny border, or when used as a centrepiece for a larger, potted display.
