Cestrum Elegans is, as its name suggests, an elegant thing, a vigorous evergreen shrub with an arching habit that comes into its own in summer into autumn when it produces clusters of tubular flowers which vary between crimson and purplish-pink. Eye-catching. May need some protection in winter in colder areas. Sun or semi-shade. Any well drained soil. To 10 feet. 2 litre pot.
From Mexico and much loved by hummingbirds, if only we had any to love it.
Trim lightly in spring to maintain desired shape.
