at Digging Dog
Beloved by hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies, this lush Central and South American member of the Potato family has a colorful allure nearly all year round. Arching stems coated with mahogany-colored fuzz showcase profuse nodding clusters of waxy, deep red tubular flowers and purplish red berries dramatically set amid burgundy-tinged leaves, which are soft as velvet and taper to a point.
A tall-standing vigorous evergreen shrub well-suited for a container, ‘Newellii’ blooms summer through winter and in some instances much longer, appreciating a protected wall or overhang, a light or heavy pruning to maintain its shape, moderate moisture and where its warm, partial shade.
Blooms May – November.
Size: 6' 0"–8' 0" high x 3' 0"–5' 0" wide; hardy to zone 9.
Cestrum ‘Newellii’ (S-0689)
