Straight from a seed collector in Chile, this mucho-tough, long-lived, low-maintenance perennial will win you over. Endearing scarlet-orange flowers may be 1” small, but are mighty in number and just keep coming Spring thru mid-Summer on 3’ stems, especially with deadheading. Dark, soft seed heads persist and add interest after the petals fall and the leaves are handsome even when the plant is not in bloom. To 30” high and wide with a tidy low, 1’ mound of rich shiny and toothed green foliage. Best in well-drained soil with some compost added.
