These are derived from a Jim Archibald collection which makes very tall plants with lighter orange-red flowers and less bluey-green foliage than the norm; they are also considered hardier. Striking orange-red to scarlet flowers produced en masse in late summer over pale-green leaves. Height to 2m or more. A magnificent species from Chile, requiring sun and reasonable drainage. Totally hardy with me, even at -14c in the big freeze of Jan 2010 and, even worse, Dec 2010.
