Planted them last year and they are absolutely beautiful. A pop of red color on a lovely green stem. They look great cute in a bouquet as well.

I love these flowers. We travel a lot and are always moving into new homes, and everytime we do I always plant these flowers. they are easy to care for and will grow in hard to grow areas. They are hard for me to find and I always forget what they are called so When I saw these in a Brecks catalog, I had to order them.
Beautiful Dependable flower
