Yellow Shrimp Plants On The Sun Porch Waiting For Good Friday to Pass

I say thank you to whomever first brought this native of Peru to America. My summer would not be commplete without these beauties basking in the morning sun. I love how bees and butterflies and hummingbirds enjoy their flowers as much as I do.

Wow ! .. they certainly are striking ! .. I wonder if we can grow them as an annual here in Canuck land .. heat/humidity in the summer .. but I guess if they can survive your summer weather .. they can our short but intense one too ?

I just discovered this plant a few years ago when it saw it growing at a local business. I have a peach colored one that has managed to survive. I would love to have more of them. Fantastic plant!
