This is a neat and splendid bloom. Here in the subtropics it dies right back below ground in the colder months. I have had it for over five years. It is susceptible to rust but this is killed when it goes dormant. It flowers in late spring and is both pod and pollen fertile.

Love this one - color is great, and I'm usually not that fond of oranges. Would like to move this to a better garden spot. It's been here since it was first introduced , and was planted near a very small ( at the time) Japanese maple. The maple isn't huge but it's grown from 2' to about 9' and gives more shade. Hoping to move it this season, as bloom production has gone down a bit with less full sun time.

Had this one since introduction. In my climate it only blooms for about a month. Haven't noticed any rust on it. The color is such an interesting blend, that I will keep it.
