Trailing Parasol

This is the view towards the south of my Kuching garden. A few months ago I started to plant the Cup and Saucer ( Holmekioldia sanguinea) by the south fence. On this trip back to Kuching
I was surprised by the stunning display of the Cup and Saucer colourful bracts . It has now somewhat fully established itself and begin trailing the fence. Now my idea of having bright orange to red colours all day long to decorate the fence is achieved. In full sun the parasol-like calyxes will grow fast especially having the fence as support. In some quarters the Cup and Saucer plant is called the 'Chinese Hat' which is also quite appropriate but where is the Dragon Girl?
