And it seemed to love it's new hot and dry location right off the hop, blooming like crazy. The flowers start out red, and over time change to orange then coral and finally pink. The hummingbirds and butterflies also really seem to enjoy it.

I have read that some of these new hybrids are awesome performers the first year, and then peter out over time. This was obviously not enough to deter me from purchasing another, however. This time, 'Coconut Lime'...it's a double-flowering white version that I thought might look nice with some ornamental grasses and Sedum 'Autumn Joy'.
