Marilyn, I love that 'Lucifer' do you think it would do well in Va. I added that to my wish list really fast. Green Grin!

You have so many pictures and I sure wish they would number them for reference purposes. Anyway what is the Red Tree in first picture of picture, and the Orange Flowers on left of second picture of picture, Also what is the vine in the middle. Lovey dubby

You do have quite a slop and great views! I am very glad you showed real life picture of 'Tomato Soup' I was wanting to order that one but was not sure about it, but I am sure now! Thumbs up

Love your containers and garden. Your area looks very green and lush by the view from the front yard.

Susan,

I forget you asked about 'Lucifer' earlier. Blinking *Blush*

I was in the house taking a short break from outside and I didn't have much light when I was answering you, so sorry I missed it. *Blush*

Yes! nodding Thumbs up It is hardy to zone 6 (or it could be zone 5), which I am. I've never lost any. You'll love it and the Hummers love it too! Lovey dubby

Thanks Marilyn, I got some bulbs in the mail today and I was surprised I got more than one, there was ten in a pack. My question is how many are planted in the clump you have? I was not planing on having ten of these, but I will. Green Grin!

I planted them years ago, so I don't know. I have clumps in two places now, but had three clumps of them before. I have them in the front yard and the back yard. I have to take good care of the Hummers! Hurray! nodding Thumbs up

I'd either plant them all in one area, or split them into two - they look much better and the bloom stalks are less likely to flop when grown in a clump. Place them about 3" apart, and as much as two inches deep. Smiling

Yeah, that's what I wanted, a big clump like hers. So if I have ten bulbs, I can go 5 & 5 or 10 in one spot as long as they are three inches apart? Green Grin!

I would put them all in one spot then if you're happy with one nice, full clump. They'll fill in quickly, but can be a bit prone to falling over if they aren't fairly close to start with. You should have plenty to divide out later if you want to start more areas of wonderful red. Hurray!
