I'm not sure what it is but the flower and bracts are a lovely colour combination :!: :)

I will make a dill of myself and say Bougainvilla, the B store was flogging that colour one out last year.

It's a Chinese Hat plant - will get you the botanic name.

I've got the Holmskioldia sanguinea which is all orange. Eye catching flower but the bush is hard to grow to a nice shape. Inclined to grow scraggly. Worth it for the flowers though.

That pink/purple one is beautiful. I'm on anew mission now to find one.

I saw them at the B store, probably read the wrong label, they couldn't have had the wrong one on it, could they. :?: :lol: I was going to buy one but they only had three and they were all pretty tatty. :(
