Description from Possibility Place: An interesting addition to any landscape, this plant is unique in the appearance of both its foliage and its flowers. Foliage is 3-lobed and matte-like, and grows in a bush-like habit. With reddish pink sepals and bright yellow stamens and anthers, the hanging flowers have the appearance of little lanterns glowing in the landscape. Not only a joy for humans, these beautiful flowers attract many pollinators, including bees and hummingbirds.
