They are commonly called Angel's Fishing Rod or Fairybells due to their unique flowers and they originate from Africa. Flowers are observed to be pink shades in most wild species, with red, purple, yellow and white variations and a range of brightly coloured cultivated varieties, some of which have patterned flowers.
