Rhodophiala bifida 'Carmencita' is a 2017 Plant Delights Nursery introduction of a clonal seedling selection we made that's the first to flower for us each year, starting here in early August...nearly a month before the commonly grown Rhodophiala 'Hill Country Red'. Each of the 1' tall stalks are topped with clusters of 4 to 7 cherry-red (Pantone PMS 214) flowers, with a central white stripe toward the throat. Rhodophiala 'Carmencita' is a fast offsetting, good flowering clone that can be used to dramatically extend the oxblood flowering season. Moist or dry soils have both been productive in our trials.
