Centradenia grandifolia ~ Trailing Princess Flower

Centradenia grandifolia is a tender shrub and will be an annual in inland gardens. But where the frost is light, the foliage bronzes to red and the bright pink flowers make a lively color clash. More than a light frost is catastrophic. Centradenia grows to 2 feet tall and across. It is native to Mexico and into Central America. Some are calling it Spanish Shawl, and Trailing Princess Flower. Plants will grow in full sun to light shade.
