This flower I think is called Sun Jewels, it is in a hanging basket right next to the crepe myrtle and I have not seen one bee on it.

Yes Dianne, I think that is the type. There were yellow flowers as well. It just won't die and goes from year to year. If I remember I will bring some pieces.  Mine are in a plastic hanging basket in part sun.

They are beautiful Christa, I haven't seen a Sun Jewels that colour before, I wouldn't mind a cutting if you can spare one?
