Gardeners' Notes:

Positive gennyga On Jun 8, 2010, gennyga from Decatur, GA wrote:

I planted 14 flats of these Scarlet New Guineas in my front yard beds, one being in pretty much all day sun and the other dappled sun throughout the day. Both beds have gone crazy! I planted them quite close together after reading that doing so helps to shade the roots, which is true. Initially they would wilt in full sun but now that they are densely grown together they are flourishing. An outstanding bed flower and surprisingly hardy.
