Description

Coral pink tubular flowers appear on an unbranched spike in winter in Chicago. Their coloration contrasts nicely with the grey-green leaves with spikes along their edges that recurve back toward the base of the plant so that, when not in bloom, it looks like a spiky ball—hence the cultivar name Hedgehog.

It will be perfectly happy outdoors in full sun in the warm months, but will need to come in when temperatures drop below 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
