Red blooms that appear in early fall; returns year after year. This triploid mule has proven Texas tough and, while not producing seed, it offsets quite readily and produces more bulbs and larger flowers than its modern counterpart from Japan. Some say that the flowers bloom two weeks after the first good fall rain. The foliage follows the flower, staying green well through the winter and into late spring.
