Santa Cruz Sunset boasts a compact, upright habit during its early stages of growth, allowing you to space closely during production. As they mature, the plants begin to cascade over the basket. No pinching is required, and your pots and baskets yield a more abundant habit compared to the vegetative varieties. Fiery bright red-orange, bell shaped flowers cover the entire plant, creating a lush tropical look. This versatile variety is not only rain and drought tolerant, it also thrives in full sun, which means it can be grown and sold successfully in all parts of the country.
