In the right conditions, they'll surprise you with their flowers which form on an excessively long stalk.

Plant these in combination in a great patio container such as a strawberry pot, or singly in terracotta pots so you can mix and match the textures and colours.

These plants are not cold hardy, so need to be kept indoors in the winter.

They require bright light for the winter months, in either a sunny window, or under fluorescent grow lights on a timer.

Outside for the summer months, they'll love full sun on your patio or deck, but don't mind a bit of shade in the afternoon.

Get ready to be swarmed by hummingbirds if you're lucky enough to have them bloom as they're one of the best plants for hummingbirds.

Use well drained soil, and water thoroughly but infrequently, even less in winter.

Don't let them sit in a saucer of water - ever!  With their fleshy roots, they have no defense against excess moisture.  Water with lukewarm water, preferably rainwater, allow it to percolate through the soil, water again, and let it drain out the bottom of the pot.
