Full Bloom Review by Mike | Zone: 2
I am excited to see that this plant is coming up this spring in my zone 2. I started some indoors in mid-February and they are in full bloom right now. Brilliant orange to red flowers. I love the foliage on it too. I can see this plant becoming one of my favorites. (Posted on 5/11/2011)
