Produces lots of strikingly-colored flowers and has been reliable here in zone 9a Florida. Gets to be around 5 or 6 feet tall and straggly by late summer but will produce new growth from the base if cut back, and the new growth will flower fairly quickly. Attracts lots of visitor attention and may be the most-photographed flower in the garden.
