Winner of the 2005 Fleuroselect Quality Award. Each golden yellow petal has a bold, wine-red mark at its base and a fringed edge. 'Sunfire' blooms in early summer, but regular deadheading will prolong the bloom time. This variety grows to about 24 in. tall and makes a nice clump that should be divided every 2-3 years. Plant it in full sun in any soil that drains well. It makes a great cutting flower and attracts butterflies to the garden.
