The flower is much longer and looser than those of Assam Orange, yellow and orange in colour. In the late summer these colour up as the nights cool providing a golden yellow focus, spangled in some years by red seed heads. Taller and more upright on thicker stems than Assam Orange.

Planting Instructions

Plant outside in sheltered sunny gardens, or pot and protect in winter. Cover the tuber with 4" (10cm) of soil and place 14" (35cm) apart. Sunny site with enough water in summer. In frost prone areas, apply a deep winter mulch, approx 4" (10cm) such as mushroom compost.
