Gardeners' Notes:

Just planted last season 2010. Very lovely flowers! A bright neon orange/yellow for me. The foilage remains perfect and green even over the cold, snowy winters here in NE Ohio!

The only drawback so far is that it seems to flop a lot for me. It could have been the pounding spring rains here though have bent the stems over. I hope next year or later blooms this year (during the drier summer) will help with that.

Otherwise, it's a gorgeous plant that peeps can see from miles away by it's color! lol
