Grown from a Gardenweb seed trade made maybe 10 years ago. I was lucky to get good germination out of the seeds.

This one is a fave of the hummingbirds, right behind Salvia guaranitica.

That's wonderful! Thumbs up It could possibly be 'Lady in Red'.

I saw an online report of Lady in Red getting to 4 feet in height but it has always been a 2 foot tall lady for me.

I've never had it reach 4 ft. either. I'd guess between 2 - 3 ft.

I got one in trade last year called "tall form". It has bloomed all summer and is still blooming. Ultimately it grew to be about 6 feet tall.
Photo of earliest bloom here The Hemerocallis blooms in the background are about 4 feet tall.
Migrating hummingbirds have deemed it a favorite.

We are trialing S. psudococcinea this year, which according to the rules of nomenclature is just a ssp. of S. coccinea. It is somewhat different from the "regular" varieties, very tall (up to 6 feet) and quite like the picture.

If that's the 'Tall Form' that Alana got from me, then it's the form that Robin Middleton describes as, "Collected in Mexico, much like the species, but can reach 9 ft. in height in hot conditions. In the UK…5 ft." Smiling
