Twisted Lipstick Plant has densely curled leaves that gracefully cascade while the bright red flowers emerge from dark maroon calyxes. ‘Rasta’ tends to bloom most heavily in late summer and early fall. It is a perfect plant for hanging baskets.
If you have a bright spot in you home or office and want a graceful draping plant that blooms off and on all year, lipstick plants are a great choice. Although a relative of the somewhat finicky African violet, lipstick plants are very easy care indoor flowering houseplants. When given the right amount of light and not too much water, lipstick plants produce numerous red or orange small tubular flowers throughout the year. Not only are the flowers colorful, the leaves can be light green, dark green, or green and maroon. Hang lipstick plants from the ceiling, place them in a wall sconce, or sit one on a table, you will love having them as one of your houseplants.
