Plant Profile - Pachystachys

This stunning plant is a tropical shrub from Peru.

The flowers are white and what you see are bright yellow bracts.  The way the bracts overlap look a bit like the tails of shrimps, prawns or yabbies.

This plant is from the Acanthaceae family, which includes the famous Acanthus.
