Jazzy whimsical whorled clusters of 1½" scarlet-orange tubular flowers bloom profusely and tirelessly from early summer into late fall. Attracts butterflies and bees but especially loved by our ruby-throated hummingbird. Striking blue-green foliage is perfoliate, appearing as if the red stems were growing through a single cupped disk. Finely shredded peeling bark makes an interesting winter display.
Great for fence or arbor or cut back like a perennial for a low rangy mound in the garden. Easy to grow, generally free of problems. Flowers the first year. Likes average well-drained soil and full sun. Species native to North America. Z3. (well-rooted transplants)
