Neutral coriaceous On Jul 7, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

The S. telephium hybrids are great performers, but I often wish the flower color were more intense/saturated. 'Red Cauli' has a bright pinkish red flower, the brightest of the bunch. Flowering begins in early July in New York City.

In other respects, it's a great performer: easy, tough, long-lived, long-blooming, a good grower, drought-tolerant once established. It's shorter than most, and less upright--the stems are a little floppy.
