We are revising our naming of the plants pictured here. The flowers in the following two photos flowers are now classified as Pachystachys spicata Cardinal's guard.
And here is a yellow one, identified by my Facebook friend, Dr. Romana de los Reyes.
as a yellow crossandra infundibuliformi firecracker plant.
This has to be differentiated from this other "firecracker plant" displayed in guide to houseplants which are Russelias.
