Hi Kayes, this is the Sanchezia speciosa and although it has quite attractive yellow tubular flowers, it is more often grown for their leaves which are large and dark green with prominent yellow veins. This plant is native to South America and if left unpruned may grow up to 2 metres high. It is usually planted as part of a mixed bed as it tends to sprawl. A drawback of this plant is that it is often attacked by pests such as mealy-bugs and so we have done away with this plant from our garden, even though the leaves are so attractive.
