Tusc. Tigress was a powerhouse in my garden last year. It put out bright orange bloom after bright orange bloom for a really long time. It multiplies well, hybridizes well (both as pod and pollen parent), and it blooms well, meaning that the blooms nearly always open fully to the triangular bloom shape that it has without hangup. It has very strong scapes, too.
