Grown at L. H. Bailey Hortorium
S. aggregata is an interesting plant, with bright orange flowers freely produced on a tall inflorescence. The foliage is often sticky, and strongly scented. The variant S. aggregata 'Pendulina' is shorter growing and somewhat more sprawling. S. aggregata is the parent, with S. pusilla, of the popular hybrid S. 'Tinkerbells'. Another photo of a yellow flowered species, thought to be a variant of aggregata may be seen here. Another larger photo of S. aggregata may be seen here.
