what is this plant
This plant is growing on my callistemon; it seems to be attached to the callistemon by several roots so it looks like it is an epiphyte of some kind; our climate here is mostly dry with the four distinct seasons.

DESCRIPTION: Dense growing shrub with loads of fiery tubular flowers shaded from red to yellow late winter and spring.
PLANTING: Plant in a partially shaded-full sun position in the garden, if you live in a cooler climate, plant in a pot and enjoy on a well lit patio.
