Bloom: Midseason, rebloomer
Colour: Orange red with yellow throat and stripe
Narrow red petals with yellow eye and yellow throat.
I picked this one up based on the tag picture thinking it had those deep autumn colours I like so well but the show has not yet been as impressive as the picture on the tag. Autumn Red works well in a mass planting but it is not a specimen plant. It produces a profusion of blooms on scapes that rise above the foliage. The blooms appear in the later half of mid-summer, lasting well into August with some blooms still lingering in September.
