Orange Flame Justicia, Golden Crown Jacobinia, Yellow Crowned Justicia
Large rounded clusters of 2" orange tubular flowers sit like golden crowns atop the large dark green tropical foliage of this rare beautiful tropical. Easy and rewarding, the Golden Crown Jacobinia flowers throughout the year creating a small herbaceous plant to about 2' high and wide. Excellent for hummingbirds! An excellent choice for a warm shaded patio as a specimen plant or in mixed containers.

Provide the Orange Flame Justicia with high light or early morning sun for the richest foliage color. It will tolerate more sun than that particularly in more northerly latitudes. This is an easy to grow tropical plant if provided with a rich fertile soil and average water. Orange Flame may be a root hardy perennial in mild winter climates like many of it's cousins but should be trialed first.
