From Mary Ann Faria of Limerock Farm in Rhode Island comes this dazzling new hybrid that forms an upright clump of cutleaf C. 'Moonbeam'-like foliage to 20" tall. From late spring until fall, the 3' wide clumps are covered with 1.5" wide flowers of rich ruby-red. This is an unbelievable color breakthrough in one of our finest garden perennials; so much so that the color doesn't exist on the famed RHS color chart...about as close as we can come is RHS 59A, but that's not "ruby" enough. We're so excited, let's celebrate together...say tonight...8pm...your place. C. 'Limerock Ruby' was introduced through the Blooms marketing program. Because one parent is the annual C. tinctoria, it has been tricky to overwinter in all but the driest of winter soils.
