A compact grower, this variety will provide beautiful 2½-3" fully double flowers in bright shades of solid yellow or orange, or a mix of bright and soft yellows, orange, and apricot. They love the cool weather from fall to spring and only need protection during a severe cold spell. They make long-lasting cut flowers, and in fact the more flowers that are cut off, the more new blooms will be created. Deadhead spent flowers to promote new buds.
