|The common name for your new plant is Firecracker Flower. It is a perennial that does best in full sun, but will tolerate some shade. Your plant will grow to about three feet in height and have clusters of tubular, scarlet colored flowers all summer. Thebotanical name is Dichelostemma and it is often sold under the name Brodiaea.
