After enjoying L. 'Vesuvius' for years in our garden, it's time to share. This splendid maltese cross is a seed strain developed from crossing a number of Asian species including L. chalcedonica, L. fulgens, and L. sieboldii. The attractive basal foliage is a dark purple green. In late spring (May in NC), the 1' tall stalks develop into a showstopping display of 1" pinwheel shaped salmon to orange flowers... each seedling is slightly different. If you're an orange sort of person, or just enjoy shocking visitors... this stunner is for you!
