In full sun, the color bleaches out some to an attractive brick red. This is an extremely vigorous variety - I have given away countless divisions.

I got Gordon Biggs at the end of season clearance sale at the grocery store, for $2. It grew into a beautiful plant with ruffled raspberry red blooms, purplish-red w/ darker center. I have it next to Addie Branch Smith and the two look very nice together.
