Where this deciduous medium sized shrubby species grew in the frozen forest at 3100m. Stunning when in fruit, which is bright orange-red flagon-shaped with conspicuous spiny bristles, resulting from the bright cerise-pink flowers. Easily grown in any type of fertile soil provided with some moisture retention and adequate drainage in sun or part shade.
