A light burnt orange with vividly contrasting mahogany red, dart-shaped eyezone. Appropriately named! This one gives an exotic flare to a border with light oranges or yellows. I loved this one tucked in-between a few ornamental grasses and solid green hostas where its flowers could silently scream for attention, otherwise it can get too loud for most optic nerves! Excellent health and vigour. Average bud count but good production of scapes.
