Golden Shrimp Plant and a beautiful Bee Pachystachys lutea, known by the common names Lollipop Plant and Golden Shrimp Plant, is a subtropical, soft-stemmed evergreen shrub between 36 and 48 inches (90 and 120 cm) tall. The zygomorphic, long-throated, short-lived white flowers emerge sequentially from overlapping bright yellow bracts on racemes that are produced throughout the warm months. It is a popular landscape plant in tropical and subtropical areas of the world. They grow in almost any well-drained soil but, like most ornamentals, prefer a soil with an acid reaction. In this preferred medium they attain their maximum in leaf size and beautiful colouring. Kingdom: Plantae (unranked): Angiosperms (unranked): Eudicots (unranked): Asterids Order: Lamiales Family: Acanthaceae Genus: Pachystachys Species: P. lutea Binomial name Pachystachys lutea Iao Valley Wailuku Maui Hawaii From my collection: Tropical Flowers of Hawaii Copyright 2013 Sharon Mau - All Rights Reserved http://sharon-mau.artistwebsites.com
