Gardeners' Notes:

Positive JimIowa On Apr 25, 2008, JimIowa from Marshalltown, IA wrote:

Beautiful Red and Gold (Go Cyclones!) colors, sometimes 2/3 of a flower is red, sometimes 2/3 of a flower is yellow, off of the same plant. Yields 20 to 30 flowers at a time, but requires staking. Produces heavy tubers - 10 to 20 viable per plant if they are started earily.

Positive langbr On Oct 10, 2004, langbr from Olathe, KS (Zone 6a) wrote:

Staking required for this cultivar as it grows 3-4 feet. Large 4-6" blooms a bright addition to the summer and early fall garden.
