Growing Yellow Firecracker Plants In My Garden.

Last year, I did a post on the Orang/Pink Firecracker or Crossandra plant.  If you are interested, you can click here to read about it. Today, I am sharing about the Yellow Crossandra or Firecracker flowering plant.
I started growing this Yellow Crossandra from stem cuttings from my sister's garden.
It has dark green leaves and the flowers are in clusters.
I used normal garden soil bought from the plants nursery. I grow it in a pot. It can be grown in partial shade or fully exposed to sun.
I fertilized it twice a month.
 This plant can grow quite tall. I trim it to cause more branches to grow and to give a bushier look.
The yellow petals are bigger than the pink ones.
 This is the Orange/Pink Crossandra or Firecracker flower. Both the Orange/Pink and Yellow Crossandra bloom all the year round.
 So let it grow, and don't try to squirm out of your problems.

For when your patience is finally in full bloom,

then you will be ready for anything,

strong in character, full and complete.

  1. What a sparkling color! Here Crossandras are grown as houseplants and their name in Finnish is literally a Magigian's plant. Happy Easter!
