    I can't say the plant looks like much, but the flowers are great - very waxy looking and the colour is very unusual.

    This one isn't near the interpretive sign, which I just read now. That was interesting.

    Prone to mildew, resulting in a gaunt (even dead) specimen unless regular fungicidal spraying is employed.

    The cinnabarinums bloomed beautifully and heavily last year. Most plants look rather sparse this year. The waxy bells are beautiful. The fragrance of the leaves is a popular feature, but I don't really care for it.
