Dermatobotrys saundersii

Dermatobotrys saundersii
An unusual Madagascan sub shrub related to Phygelius, with similar pink tubular flowers and broad aromatic leaves. Usually an epiphyte or lithophyte in the wild - it fits in well with succulents and bulbs and other African xerophytes. 
Dermatobotrys saundersii
Definitely not hardy outside but needs minimal heat in winter - I keep it dry and it loses its leaves. Flowers appear on largely bare branches in autumn.
