  • Gives pro landscapers and gardeners alike a mid-size, full-sun series that flourishes in high heat/humidity and tolerates Summer rains well while still showing colour. 
  • Can be sold as a late Spring to Summer item in cooler areas.
  • Large, star-shaped umbels – up to 3 in./8 cm across – attract butterflies and hummingbirds.
