I discovered this rare achimines hybrid (Achimines glabrata x Smithiantha zebrina) during a visit to Texas, and trust me when I tell you that the flower was the only thing hotter than the weather there in August! This dark purple-green foliage is topped in late summer with phenomenal 1" round flourescent orange-red flowers that literally appear to be on fire! If you have been looking for an accent in the garden that will grab eyes from 100 paces...this is your plant. A. 'Inferno' is also a great choice for planters where hot colors are the theme of the day!
