Gardeners' Notes:

Positive gonedutch On Sep 29, 2003, gonedutch from Fairport, NY wrote:

This is a fun plant for any sunny garden. It has a sturdy 3-foot upright 'candle' form and attracts lots of bees. Its inflorescences bloom from the bottom up making for a relatively long term display. New flowers often show a different color from spent flowers and they never fail to stir interest by young visitors to the garden. Bulbs survive our zone 5 winters and do not need to be stored.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Elba, New York
Fairport, New York
