I bought this as a tuber in a bag in early spring.
It has a very large bloom.

Gorgeous! Just how big ARE the blooms? Do you have to stake it?

Thanks, everyone. I was so surprised by it. This is the first bloom..and it is about 6 in. across..there is another one coming so I will see if it is as large..I find sometimes with some plants,..the first bloom is the largest..and the following ones are a bit smaller. I don't have to stake it.. is called "Firecracker"
