This unusual plant has spectacular flowers, similar in shape and size to those of fuchsias, growing on low-spreading, bushy plants with attractive light, feathery foliage in late summer and autumn. But unlike fuchsia flowers, those of zauschneria are all the same colour, a bright vermilion-red, and most stand out horizontally rather than hanging down. They are clustered together at the tips of the stems, held just above the foliage, so the plant forms its own leafy backdrop. Plants need very sunny, sheltered, well-drained conditions to survive the winter grow in pots in cold regions.
