Brilliant, orange-scarlet flowers measuring 1½” across are produced in abundance beginning in early summer and lasting nearly 8 weeks. The foliage is nearly as pretty as the flowers, having a purplish-bronze cast over the naturally dark green leaves. The contrast is dazzling!
After flowering, the swollen seed pods provide additional interest to extend the season.
