I bought these plants live in a six-pack from a local nursery. They thrived in the hot summer sun and produced blooms in various colors: red, yellow, peach, dark mauve, and pink.

The dark reddish foliage was also lush and interesting.

I did not bother to dig the bulbs in the fall, though, so I can't say how well they survive a second planting.
