Common names: two-tone heath (English). 
Botanical name: Erica versicolor

Erica versicolor, known as the two-toned heath, adds vibrant beauty to gardens with its bicoloured red and green/yellow tubular flowers blooming from October to April. This South African native thrives in well-drained, acidic soil and sunny spots, but needs shelter from harsh winds and prefers warmer climates.  Nectar-rich flowers attract hummingbirds and other pollinators, making it a valuable addition to wildlife-friendly gardens.
