Description

This kind of flowers does not require gardeners to cut it's flowers because new flowers will replace the old ones. the petals are orange and it is thin. The middle of the flower is black on the outer layer, oranges on the next layer, and a dark green spot on the middle. This type of plant makes a long trail with the green stems. It does not grow much in height, but it spreads out like vines.
