My Jean Pasko has ben in the ground for three years and has never failed to bloom profusely. This year is no exception and there are more than 60 flower buds in view right now (Nov. 19th). However, temperature dropped to 36 degrees F. last night and there may be some damage -- will check them later today and see how they have fared. Docturf
in coastal South Carolina.

Easy to grow, low-maintenance brug. No insect infestation. Bees love. Blooms are huge: 11" long from the calyx, and as big as a salad plate.

Blooms early to late November here in Corte Madera (10a). Yellow, yellow-orange corolla perfect against the blue sky.

Though the above description states the color of 'Jean Pasco' as "Pink Coral/Apricot," I have never heard those colors used to decribe it. The photos on this page don't show those colors either. Orangey-yellow I think is about right- gold perhaps.
