Foliage:

Unusual bicolor blooms look like parrot’s beaks, yellow at the base darkening to orange and red at the tips. Blooms open over ferny silver foliage that cascades beautifully making spectacular hanging baskets alone or combined with other annuals. These plants prefer heat, and will often wait to bloom until late spring temperatures give way to hot summer, so be patient!
