Leaves: the younger ones have a pale green colour, the others are large, bright green, shiny, with an entire margin or deeply lobed. Flowers: small bell-shaped cream colored on the outside and purple on the inside gathered in panicles. Fruits: dehiscent boat-shaped woody capsules containing many seeds covered with stinging hairs.

Pedoclimatic needs

It prefers very sunny positions, loose, light soil, without stagnation and possibly with a fair amount of organic substance. The adult specimens are not afraid of short frosts (-4°/-6°C), but the young plants must be sheltered in winter to prevent the frost from ruining them. It does not require large quantities of water.
