Description
 
This is an exceptional plant which came from Ellen Hornig of Seneca Hills Nursery.  Ellen got this in South Africa where she said it is regarded as a "Victorian pass-along plant".  Apparently this has been shared among gardeners there for many years!  Here it is fairly epic getting nearly 4 feet tall with narrow tubular reddish flowers arrayed on the splayed floral hands in July and August.  We have no comparables to this in our collection.
