On the look out for new, different and unusual plants? Meet Coral Drops. Ideal for containers placed near to where you relax, these slender plants produce flowers that beg to be examined up close. Coral Drops are native to Mexico, with foliage that matures to about a foot tall and candleabra flower stems that extend up another 8-16 inches. The plump buds ("coral drops") open to reveal pendulous coral red blooms, often accented with a contrasting stripe down petal centers. Individual flower last for 10-14 days on the plants.
