Justicia brandegeeana-Shrimp Plant

Shrimp plant is a medium-sized shrub, growing about 4' tall and wide.  True flowers are only small, 1" long tubes, but are surrounded by red and orange sepals that give this plant its common name.  Flowers are produced mostly summer and fall.  Full sun, except in the low desert where afternoon shade is best.  Moderate water use, extra in summer.
