I've never grown this one, but I was thinking about ordering it this spring myself. The variegated foliage is sure pretty, and the red flowers are favorites of butterflies.

I've had this in my garden and love it. The variegated foliage always looks pretty and the hummingbirds love the bright red flowers. I plan on planting it again this year.

It was one of several varieties that I grew last year. Growth habit was comparable to the other colors...it's claim to glory, in my garden, was the variegated foliage.
