Zoom In Photo:

This is the classic montbretia cultivar in our region's gardens. 'Lucifer' has tall stems with pleated, spiked, green leaves and upward-facing, bright red flowers on arching stems from mid to late summer. Easy and tough and provides lots of colour. It is a close-up of the buds of 'Lucifer' that appears on all of our signage. A hummingbird favourite.
