Gardeners' Notes:

I have the red variety, which is actually more like hot pink. It has been very easy to grow, in fact, all I do is water it once in a while. The stalks with blooms grow very high, and mine have the seed pods all over them. They are popular here in Albuquerque, but most of the ones I see do not have many, if any, seed pods. The seed pods are quite heavy, so they make the stalks bow. I wonder if I should cut them off to let the flowers stand more straight. Anyway they are growing in rocky soil, nothing special for sure, and they do not want too much water. We are having drought here, so they do have to be watered. I just give them a good bit of water, but let them get pretty dry before watering again. They do very well for me, with very little effort, and apparently for many others here in Albuquerque as well.

Everyone around here has the pink aka red flowered one and when mine blooms it has stopped traffic on my neighborhood street . The most common question is Where did you get it ? I let everyone know I purchased it online at High Country Gardens along with three of the brakelight red ones I love them and so do the hummingbirds ! They seem to be attracted more to the brakelight red cultivar than the yellow though . I have started three new plants of the yellow form and and giving one to my mother and two of my neighbors who have pleaded me to start them a plant . It is a great attention getter for gardens who have the more common red .
