Product Description

These vigorous plants form wide spreading, well-branched clumps of bright green, narrow leaves. From early summer through early fall, the attractive foliage is covered in velvety wine red blossoms with a golden orange button in the center - and no deadheading or other maintenance is required to keep it blooming over a long period! The flowers expand as they age, maturing to a large 1 ½ - 2” size.  The underside of each petal is a creamy yellow with a purple stripe down the center.  Butterflies and honeybees adore these beautiful blossoms!

Great as border plants, in containers, or as a mass planting.  Don't forget to snip a few for your vases and bring the outdoors in!
