Blooms are red to orange in color, tubular is shape and are prolific from Spring thru Fall. Plants will look best in partial shade in Las Vegas and will even bloom if in full shade. Supplemental weekly irrigation will keep the Water-Willow looking its best through hottest parts of the summer months. Evergreen during the mildest winters, however a hard freeze of 25 degrees or lower will cause significant foliage damage. Plants will recover from the roots in the spring.
