Strophanthus preussii is an ornamental plant strongly valued by plant lovers for its extraordinary beautiful flowers with rust-colored throats. This plant is quite demanding and needs specific conditions to thrive, so it may not be the best choice for a novice gardener.
Strophanthus is a native of African forests. It prefers moist areas and can grow up to 40ft (12m) long in its homeland. It can grow as a shrub sometimes, but usually, it adopts a twining habit and grows into nearby trees for support. The plant has glossy leaves with trumpet-shaped flowers. It's also easy to identify by its remarkable drooping streamers.
