7" striking, deep fluorescent red-orange bloom has a brighter red halo and greenish throat. Sturdy scapes over pest-resistant foliage are loaded with buds. Blooms hold up in heat and humidity. Fragrant. Tetraploid. Early to midseason.
Adaptable low maintenance plants, they are very resistant to drought and heat but can also tolerate wetter conditions, coastal sites, and clay soil. Attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. Pull off dead or yellow leaves and remove spent bloom stalks to keep plants tidy and to encourage additional flowers from rebloomers. Remove all dead foliage in late fall. Divide every 3 years to maintain vigor.
Individual blooms last for a single day, but lots of buds keep them blooming for an extended period.
