No matter the common name or botanical , this is one hot red flower .. so red the camera has a hard time getting it right .. or is that me ? .. the disappointing thing this year is that this particular one is too skinny ! .. now how many times have you heard that one ? .. here I was greedily happy, bringing it home thinking I got two for the price of one bargain .. and now look at it .. spindly almost invisible stalks with that flash of hot red hanging in mid air .. Normally I would say "COOL!" what a trick !! .. but not when it concerns a plant .. what will happen next year is a mystery .. this one is said to be treated like an annual .. another sigh !
