Highly attractive to bees and butterflies.

'Peaches & Cream' is tall growing, free blooming, and colorful. Very full 7-inch blossoms are composed of yellow petals, flamed with bright orange, and tipped in white. The tall plant has lush dark foliage. Excellent for cutting. Grows 46-54" tall.

Despite the data on the label (either HD or Lowe's) saying this Peaches 'n Cream grows to 18 inches, mine is at 6'.
