Drop Dead Red™

So velvety…soooo intense…just a jaw-droppingly delicious red… especially set against the highly-glossed deep green leaves that mirror all the eye-popping action. This killer color is truly a 'stop 'em dead in their tracks' kinda red that's certain to lure you to linger. And it's THAT red to the very finish of the flower…making this bushy shiny showy plant a natural for the landscape. Best flower size in cooler conditions.
