Lady in red with trailing long compact curls, she is a blooming stunner and she knows it. The Aeschynanthus Rasta sends out trailing fronds of shiny sickle shaped foliage, tipped with lipstick-like rouge blooms. Rasta is more robust and displays a fuller foliage than her delicate cousin the pink polka.
Pruning back longer stems by a third will promote bushier growth and subsequently more blooms.
Be cruel to be kind! If your trailing plant is quite long and leggy with not many flowers, a quick trim after flowering in autumn means you will get even more next year.
Blooming lovely! If you don’t have many flowers, try moving this plant somewhere warm, bright and humid. You will be thanked in the late summer.
