Gardeners' Notes:

Love this little cutie! With it's shorter stature of about 20 inches and it's orange sherbert color! It blooms well for me and is fully winter hardy here in NE Ohio. Worth it!
I just bought 3 more!

Bertie Ferris really cranks out the flowers for a long time; cheerful, easy, happy. Opens well after cool nights, too. A winner!

Bertie Ferris is a very adorable cultivar best grown
in pots or in mass for effect.

The bloom is small, but you simply can't resist it's charm.
