Amazing! Glowing mandarin-orange flowers start in early spring, continue through the summer and into late fall. Very hardy in my xeriscape area -- clay loam with little organic material. Loves hot, sunny, dry areas -- I'm going to try it in my "hellstrip" this year. Reseeds heavily wherever the wind blows the seeds, but unwanted volunteers are easily pulled. Forms an attractive, low-growing clump of leaves that blooms off-and-on from April through October, without dead-heading.
