Carnival in Mexico blooms here in my garden in a large front yard clump where it is easy to see for anyone passing by. I love the dramatic and striking flowers.

Looking at all my plants just before our first freezing weather of the year, this was the worst looking plant in my garden as far as rust is concerned! I really hate that because it has one of the loveliest blooms in the garden to me.
