INTERESTING INFO:
From the 2011 Long's Gardens Catalog: This little rosy red lighthouse sends a beacon of light across the spring garden. The standards are pinkish rose red as are the rims of the falls, but the falls are accented by a dark maroon red spot. But itís the yellow gold beard that provides the shining light that radiates and accents the flower. You wonít need a flashlight to see it at night. Expect 2 to 3 buds.
