Description
 
This is not commonly grown and only a handful of nurseries in the UK offer this 1918 George Henley introduction and you would be hard-pressed to find anyone in the US.  Small flowers touched red on the outside of the tepals and fusing into yellow on the inside presenting a very pleasing two-toned effect.  The small-flowered cultivars bring a tasteful nuanced splash of color and often can be more effective than the larger flowered varieties.  This is a good mid-sized plant at 30" tall or a bit less.
