Product Details

Soft peaches, sunny yellows, and deep maroons are just a few of the spectacular colors in this blend. Narrow, elongated petals add a whimsical touch to any garden, and with tall, sturdy stems and blooms measuring up to 6" across, these make a truly exceptional cut flower and a great addition to a pollinator garden. Perennial in USDA zones 7—10; in colder climates, at season's end, tubers can be lifted and stored indoors over winter (see inside packet for details). Tubers and flower petals are edible.
