Saw the flowers on this plant in 2010 at the local Home Depot and just had to have it, you saw the deep red from a distance, very striking! I can't wait to see how it does this year, so far the plant has doubled in size already!

Lusty Lealand survived two blooming seasons in a one gallon pot before I got around to planting it. It continued to bloom happily. I am amazed at its tolderance for neglect and its intense red flowers.
