Gosh, Sue that's a stunning color! I found 'Ruby Tuesday' and 'Red Jewel' and 'Salsa' but all are more of a rusty shade than yours. Shrug!

Second look, how about this one? Sneezeweed (Helenium 'Ranchera')

I've never seen one like it, it really was blood red. I couldn't see a label so might ask the garden if they have an ID.

Thanks Elaine!
