'Different Direction' is one of the biggest surprises in my garden. Planted last year but didn't bloom until 2 days ago. And today the 2nd blooms opened up. WOWZA!! This is what I call a knockout plant. You cannot miss it in the garden. The bloom measured over 8'' today. It's simply huge, and the colors of brilliant orange and yellow are outstanding. Pete Harry introduced this beauty 2 yrs ago, and I am so ecstatic I won it on the LA. Great plant in every respect.
