The front deck is largely orange this summer....Chrysothemis pulchella has reached this size from a smallish dormant tubers...it;s a Gesneriad

I stored it bone dry in a 6" pot at room temperature (68F-58F) all winter. It revived cheerfully, damped off in the heavy rains of late spring, and popped up, much to my surprise a couple weeks later.
