Justicia scheidweileri 'Brazilian Fireworks'

Brazilian Fireworks,
Justicia scheidweileri 
 I love the vibrant colour contrast of the bracts compared with the flowers on this little plant. It is a small shrub which grows to about 20cm and flowers for most of the year prefering a sheltered or shady spot. It would be suitable to grow as an indoor plant in frosty climates and brought outdoors over summer. I hope to get some cuttings of this plant soon and have it growing well by next summer.
2017 update: I still only have one small plant of this. It is not particularly robust.
