    Winner of numerous awards and for good reason! Even though this is registered as an evergreen, it reportedly does quite well in colder zones. For me, it quickly made a large clump, is a long time bloomer/rebloomer, and the large blooms have great substance and stand up to the heat, maintaining its rich coloring. The large yellow-green throat is a drawing beacon in the garden too!

    Loving this CV so far. It was gifted to me in September, with enough fans to divide it into two pottings.

    It immediately started its recovery and has also multiplied, adding a couple fans to each division. I am very anxious to see its blooms next year.
