Pachystachys lutea - Golden Shrimp Plant, Lollipop Plant
Pachystachys lutea grows two to three feet tall and slowly spreads by underground runners. I have seen plants grow best in moderate shade with regular moisture. Barring frost Pachystachys lutea blooms nearly year-round. The flowers are a bit top heavy and the plants can be damaged by overhead water. Pachystachys lutea will survive Winter temperatures through the high 20°s F though this will probably result in total top defoliation, foliage is damaged in the low 30°s F
