8-14" spiked clusters of up to 40 pinkish-red ball-like buds open to yellow butterfly-like blooms, then fade to a deep orange and gold, and finally turning to a deep reddish-orange to red. This large growing shrub to tender shrub-like perennial makes a fantastic show throughout summer. Give it plenty of room and a well-drained, moderately fertile soil, preferably in full sun. Plant with caution as butterflies and hummingbirds will repeatedly attack the flowers. Item # 571.
