I'm interested in the variability of this plant--I work in a nursery and we received five specimens of "Yellow Lantern" for sale to our customers. Only one plant had buds and they have opened up into flowers that are distinctly peachy (as though a flame were showing through a lantern?), with a definite pink component. But, this doesn't jive with posted pictures of this flower and I wonder if I received the right plants or if it is just variable in flower color when grown from seed. They appear to be extremely vigorous growers, too. Can anyone offer any insight?
