Aeschynanthus 'Topaz'

 

Lipstick Plant 'Topaz'

The Aeschynanthus lipstick vine has pointy, waxy leaves and blooms with bright clusters of red blossoms. These flowers emerge from a maroon bud resembling a tube of lipstick from which the plant derives its common name. 'Topaz' has interesting yellow flowers, with dark green foliage. It can be quite scraggly, but given good light and proper care, it will mature into an attractive basket plant.

Planting indoors.

From Early Spring TO Late Spring

To display its cascading habit perfectly, plant in a hanging basket. The plant needs bright light for a portion of the day, but not all day long. Avoid placing it in full sun. It should be grown in a room temperature of 21-27C for maximum bloom but will flower to a lesser degree in a temperature as low as 16C.
