Neutral Gabrielle On Feb 4, 2006, Gabrielle from (Zone 5a) wrote:

Like glowing-red fire pokers, flowers are red at the tips, orange in the middle, and pale yellow at the bottom. Absolutely striking in the garden and a focal point when in bloom from early to late summer. 33" tall by 18-24". Used as a cut flower. Blooms late June in my garden.
