Rare and choice goody that Jim Fox brought back to us from England.  Surprisingly hardy, this shocks in a genus full of yellows and whites by having screaming hot pink daisies in summer.  Don't plant it with the red Dahlia 'Bishop of Llandaff' like we did - a memorable combo for garish bad color combinations that still sends me bolt upright in bed.  We can only paraphrase Bob Brown's perfect description as the plant did come from his nursery "The color reminds me of an Indian brothel.  Not that I would know,"  We mulch ours in winter just to be on the safe side which is easy as it is dormant.
