This outstanding, easy-care selection will send a thrill through the early summer garden as huge 6' red blooms rise above the green foliage. The flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds with their dark red petals and yellow centers. This mid-summer bloomer keeps the color coming for weeks! Very easy to grow and tolerant of poor soils and some shade. Very showy when massed into landscape waves. 'Sun-Dried Tomatoes' is rabbit resistant, low maintenance, salt-tolerant, and grows well in containers.
Thrives in full/partial sun. Feed yearly with an organic fertilizer. Remove spent blooms to keep plants looking tidy in season. Cut back to near ground level after a hard freeze in late fall.
