Plant Type: Perennials

The 'Flamenco' flower spike is desirable as a long stem cut flower. The tubular blooms on a flower spike can be light yellow, golden yellow, orange, red or shades of these colors.

 


Growing & Maintenance Tips:

In the garden, provide full sun with fertile, weed free, draining soil for maximum plant growth.  'Flamenco' can be grown in patio containers but it has a tap root so select a deep container to accommodate the root system.   It is best to cut the flower spike when the lowest two rows of flower tubes are fully open.  With proper cutting and treatment 'Flamenco' spikes can last 7 to 10 days in a bouquet.  A sun lover that likes it hot and dry.
