A cultivar of the Northern Lights series with bright, deep orange flowers.
full sun to partial sun
average to moist, water during dry periods
Soil & Site
organic soil, acid ph of 4.0-5.5
trumpet shaped, in clusters, bright, deep orange
deciduous, purple fall color
up to 5-7 feet
I like to dig a large hole, not to deep and mix the soil with 50% peat moss or compost. Plant in a slight mound for good drainage. Add a cup or two of Ammonia sulfate (or an other acid producing fertilizer)add some regular fertilizer. Water in good and keep moist. Mulch will help to slow down the loss of water. I like to add acid fertilizer in the fall and spring. Also you can use a liquid acid fertilizer such as Mir-acid. Any pruning should be done right after flowering.
Introduced by the University of Minnesota (USA)
For the best results follow the cultural rules listed above. Also give them some time. Most potted plants you can buy in the stores are not real full.
