Gardeners' Notes:

If you want to maintain the flower's dark coloring, it is best to plant Salieri in a location sheltered from the strong afternoon sun. Morning sun is ideal.

Loews here in Columbus, Ohio, Zone5b/6a, have sold this for the past 2 years. It is a beautiful deep, dark maroon with yellow green throat. Its bloom is big about 4-5 inches across. And seem to be long blooming. Starting in about the end of May through June. Not a rebloomer from what I can remeber from last year, but well worth the penny!. You won't be dissappointed.
