Golden shrimp plants are popular landscape items in tropical areas. The “shrimp” is grown primarily for its flower heads. The easy to grow plants produce a year-round profusion of overlapping masses of gold bracts flecked with small white flowers tipped with purple spots, each having two slender petals and long yellow stamens, amid bright green leaves. The flowers last only a few days but the flower heads last for a long period of time.

1. Add beauty to the garden
1. The best time to trim and prune is when blooming begins to slow. 2. To prevent the plant from setting seed and entering dormancy early, snip flowers as soon as they wilt. 3. If they're kept as perennials, refresh older pots with fresh potting soil every spring, but don't increase pot size.
1. Avoid excessive fertilization, which weakens the plant and makes it more susceptible to disease and insects
