Strike It Rich®

Spicy fragrance, loads of bloom & super-long elegant buds of gold polished with rosy pink. The long-lasting sparkling yellow-orange tones are rich & opulent enough to bring out the gold digger in any gardener. But it doesn't take a stash of expensive chemicals to keep this good lookin' girl happy in the landscape. The natural disease resistance & strong vigor do the deed. Very dark green leaves & unusual red stems set off the many showy clusters of blossoms. 'Scent-sational' for a bouquet & 'beauty-full' in the landscape.
