Grow this plant now! I'm in zone 9b and this plant has had full foliage and been blooming continuously since I planted it last June. It is on the edge of a small rockery raised bed and looks awesome. Flowers are scarlet red edged fading to almost black, with yellow centers. Tumbles over the sides of the bed beautifully. It is about a foot high and spills out about 2', but I've trimmed it back a few times to give some other slower growers more room. I have 3 other varieties planted in other spots around the rockeries and they are doing OK, but not as well as this one. It is in better soil (fresh bed as opposed to competing with tree roots), so that may explain the better growth, but the other haven't bloomed in months and this one is still going. Would be great in a hanging basket, too.
