The photos don't do this flower justice: the red is so intense it almost blinds my camera!

It also does a fairly good job of self-cleaning and thus far is thriving in its north-porch location (with plenty of water).

Dig tubers in autumn before the first hard frost and dry off. Dust with fungicide, and store dormant tubers at 41-45 degrees F. In spring, replant tubers, hollow side up, in free-draining potting soil at 61-64 degrees F.
