Emilia coccinea is a flower that should be tried by more gardeners. I remember seeing it a garden at Tower Hill and deciding then and there "I must grow this." So I did, and last year it was my FAVORITE new flower in my garden. Clusters of bright orange, puffy little flowers on 18" wiry stems makes this a great plant to weave in and out of other, bolder blossoms. It makes a fun cut flower too. A warm season annual, direct sow after danger of frost or start ahead of time in the house in April. An heirloom, unusual annual. Try something new this year!
