Warm orange-brown flowers that glow brick-red in sun and not a sombre note anywhere- good with apricots - and it can throw up a few September flowers too

  • Soil: well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May and June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy


    An unusual new introduction with rich brown, fragrant, ruffled blooms in May and June. It not only looks great, but actually flowers for longer - sometimes up to four weeks - often with repeat performance in the autumn if the weather is hot and dry. Lovely in drifts in a sunny border.

  • Garden Care: Plant shallowly with the upper part of the rhizome sitting on the surface of the soil, incorporating a low nitrogen fertiliser in the planting hole. After planting remove the upper-most third of the leaves to protect against wind-rock. In exposed areas stake with bamboo canes in early spring. Divide and replant about every three years.

  • Harmful if eaten
