Bright, warm red 4" blooms have a red band, yellow watermarks and small green throat. Petal edges are gently ruffled. Individual blooms last up to 16 hours. Award winner. Early.
The foliage is arranged in fans of longitudinally folded leaves. 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.
