Mammoth is a good description. I bought three tiny pots of these at a spring master gardener's sale. Within two years I have five clumps that are all shrub-size, and they bloom profusely. The flowers are a lovely bright cherry red with yellow centers. They have been blooming for a month already and seem to be unaffected by frost. They add a great bright color to the fast-fading fall landscape of Minnesota. I believe these used to be called My Favorite Autumn Red.
