Mardi Gras

The last day of Carnival is the annual chance for one last big blowout. Mardi Gras (rose) can easily join in that lively celebration with its riotous display of yellows, oranges & pinks. Pointed red buds & well-formed flowers turn up in colorful clusters on this vigorous upright show-off. Dark red new shoots & abundant deep green leaves complete her perfect party dress. A very consistent performer - just one plant can make its own parade.
