Atomic Orange is really different...although now that I think about it Spacecoast Starburst had a similar look when growing here. Tom's Eye of the Needle and Imperial Lavender were my two favorites. Lee's collection is very nice this year too. Linda always has really interesting narrow forms and her names are fun little tongue twisters!

I agree, some prices have reached an oh my stage.....

Atomic Orange is certainly an eye catcher in Polston's picture. Whether it would retain that distinctive coloration in our hot summer sun much past noon remains to be seen. Out of my price range for such a trial, but I hope someone else in the hotter zones gives it a whirl.......Maryl
