BIG FLOWERS on a medium-sized plant. AND, they are RED HOT!

"The longer the sleeves of the clothes, the more beautiful the dance becomes."
Chinese proverb from The Zhou Dynasty (1046~256 B.C.)
Flowing silk sleeves were thought to enhance the beauty and gracefulness of dancers.

Our 'Dance Sleeves' bloom all summer long. The large flowers are brilliant red and as they age the petals stack beautifully so the flower looks spectacular from the side. We grew it in a 13" pot by mistake - it needs a larger pot - but it still produced extremely well. A winner in every sense of the word!

Flower Color: Brilliant Red 
Plant Height: Medium, 24’-47”
Flower Type: Multi-petal, more than 50 petals
Pot Size: 18” and wider, 10”-18” deep
