Blazing Sunset

I planted this perennial last spring.

I love the deep red, crinkled flowers with yellow centers.

I also like its wiry, wild stems and the bloom buds

which look like tiny crowns just before they pop open.

This plant has exploded with color this April

with no special care from me.

When I find a plant that thrives without being needy,

I like to spread the word.
