This bright red orange adds a lot of kick to the warm colors in my full-sun garden, next to Mary Todd and some coneflowers.

SILOAM SUNBURST isn't sunfast. Though still quite pretty after a full day of full sun, the blooms keep their dark color better in a location with afternoon shade. I've posted pictures of both looks.
