The large robust plant is the present and the giant 8 to 9” bright Christmas red flowers are the bow. It is classified as UF “unusual form” because the top petals are spatulate and the lower petals are spider like thus making the flower look star like. The early to mid-season blooming flowers have a bright yellow throat that blends out to the diamond dusted petals, kind of sparkling in the sun. At up to 36” this dormant tetraploid stands up to summer weather.
