This large dormant tetraploid will really stand out in the garden. A bright blend of sunset colors orange, red and yellow on a 6” flower held atop 36” scapes will grab attention. The sunny yellow throat spreads to orange, and then red at the tips of the petals, with yellow mid ribs. The plant has huge fans and very sturdy scapes as well as heavy substance in the blooms so it really stands up to our Wisconsin weather. A nice fragrance is a bonus. It starts blooming mid-season and then is listed as an extended bloomer but in my garden it has been one of the latest as well.
