My one tiki torch that i had for years got attached by some tunneling caterpillar.. then aphids got it from the base without me seeing until it was too late and the whole plant wilted. So i bought a small plant last fall and it has filled in nicely this year. This is the first bloom.
That is beautiful. I bought 2 'Tiki Torch' over the years but, sadly they both died. You must have just the right place for it.
nah.. again this one was purchase last fall.. so it's not my doing. Though the one before that died was 3 years old.
I like the color, but this cultivar is very short lived. People need to be informed before spending so much for a very weak plant. These cost so much and give so little.
I just got my Cheyenne Spirit seeds! I have seen some photos of them a friend grew. They are a very good mix of bright colors. There is no need to buy expensive mutants now for yellow, orange, or red.
A friend ordered some from overseas and sent me two packets. She got them from Plants of Distinction.
