14-16″ tall plants with large flower clusters that attract swarms of butterflies and other pollinators. Compact size works well in containers and beds. Heat tolerant, adaptable and resilient. Native from Yemen to East Africa, star flower is a tropical woody-based perennial or subshrub that grows 3-6’ tall in its native habitat, but more typically to 1-2’ tall in beds or containers locally.
