Justicea carnea blooms again

What is a Justicea carnea you ask? Have you ever seen one? Common names are Kings Crown and Cardinal Feather. This really unique outdoor plant that is native to Brazil and is tender in zone 8, so I have been wintering it in the greenhouse. It blooms in cycles throughout the year. It was a gift from some friends who grew it in Florida about ten years ago.
