 Aphelandra hartwegiana
Family: Acanthaceae
Yellow Aphelandra
Origin: Panama and Colombia
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Yellow flowers emerge out of long orange stalks in the fall time. Pretty and unusual! A tall, shrubby perennial with very long (over 15″) terminal inflorescences that are very unique and showy, with yellow flowers protruding from orange calyces in succession over many days. The leaves can get at least 14″ long, and in bright light the midvein and petiole can take on a reddish hue. Grows nicely in full sun in south Florida, but it will also tolerate quite shady conditions. It can get leggy and is best pruned regularly to help maintain a branching, dense form - give it a good trim around July. It is otherwise a very easy, undemanding and rewarding plant.
