They will produce clusters of large, mostly yellow funnel-shaped flowers, and the fruits will follow and are berry-like, with leaves arranged alternately on the stems. They are frost tender, min 16-18C and will need full light and well drained soil. Propagation is by seeds in the spring or by semi-ripe cuttings in the summer.
