Gas Plant is an extraordinary beauty that has been cultivated in gardens since Roman Times. We love these citrus relatives for their shiny green foliage and fruity fragrance.

Spikes of pink flowers with deep red veins are extremely showy from late spring to early summer. Flowers are followed by interesting star-shaped seed pods.

Also known as Burning Bush as the volatile oils in the flower spikes can be ignited (with difficulty) and will produce a flash of light.

Easy to grow in any fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Deer resistant.
