As vivid & rich a turquoise as any that exists in the plant world! 1” three-petalled blooms accented with prominent, sunny yellow anthers are almost unreal on upright, branchy 1-2' stems from Summer thru Fall! They last only a day, but just keep coming with more & more produced every year on this "happy-just-about-anywhere" TOTALLY TOUGH dry, wet & CLAY tolerant long-lived tuberous perennial. Mid-green leaves form a low clump to 18" across. Extra showy combined with yellow blooms. Tubers can be lifted & stored like Dahlias. Self-sows.
