Bright red-orange blooms grow in clusters of 10-50, each flower containing five petals in the shape of a cross. Originating in Russia, this flower was an early import to the American colonies, and Thomas Jefferson sowed it in one of the oval beds at Monticello in 1807. These showy blossoms are a must for hummingbird lovers!
