Large beautiful flower. Late bloomer. One of our 4th of July Garden Flowers
The Name Says It All!!!
Linda Abbott (Ogden, UT) 1/6/2016 12:55 PM
I couldn't believe the number of flowers I got from my plant, and at the end of the season, the ball of tubers were as huge as the flowers. I'm reordering because it is obviously delicious as well. Critters ate all the tubers over the winter. Magnificent flower. If you're debating whether you want to buy it or not, buy it. You won't be disappointed.
Very showy
