This plant was an AAS winner of 1974.
'Diablo' is Spanish for 'devil'. This Mexican native was introduced into English horticulture in the late 18th century. Scarlet blooms last up to a week when used as a cut flower. Needs minimal care and thrives in poor soil. Plants are bushy and 2-3 ft tall. Treat as a half-hardy annual.
