This selection is a beautiful bicolor with flowers beginning in early spring and lasting into the summer.

Both flowers appear on the stem at the same time providing a bicolor effect. Long lived and drought tolerant. Excellent specimen plant. Excellent cut-flower, and is also attractive to butterflies. Drought tolerant, once established. Plants may be increased by dividing in spring, every 4 to 5 years. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
