About Face™

This bi-color medal-grabber makes your eyeballs salute cause the two colors are outside-in. Or is it inside-out? The lighter lasting golden-orange color is on the inside with a distinct darker bronzy-red outside. Yet it's not just the flying colors that will cause a flap. It's a turning point as a plant, too, with superb vigor, lush clean green leaves and loads of bloom. Very disease resistant.
