Ahh…I love this golden candle. I always look forward to new blooms in my small garden.  And do you know that the real flowers are the white petals at the tip of the yellow ones?   Common names are golden shrimp, yellow shrimp, lollipop plants or shrimp plants.  propagation is done through cuttings and seeds.
