Absolutely Blue Ensign!
Best I ever have had and have now..
Totally upright..mine is in June 5 foot tall..
spreads and can pot for friends as gifts each spring...
Love it and have posted it on the site before
If anyone knows of one similar please tell us
I have never found a red tubular ...that stands upright
for zone 8b and morning sun to 2 pm sun
high humidity in our area and some weeks 92 to 100 days
during summer months..
I bought Cherry Queen but it is not the long blooming prolific bloomer
that Blue Ensign is...
If anyone ever knows of a upright red tubular for my zone and humidity
that can fit into my sheris healing flower bed let me know
I can not use any salvia that would be against a fence or building due to the size
has to be in this flower bed...thanks
