didyma 'Marhsall's Delight'
Not really all that exotic, but this perennial is truly solid and
dependable. Plus 'Scarlet' is really unbeatable for the clarity
of its hue- truly red, no overtones of pink or purple. Marshall's
is mid pink, Prarie Night is purple. Long bloom time and aromatic
foliage to boot. Slight warning to any allergic to bees- it isn't
called beebalm for nothing. Go ahead, do something nice for the
bees in your neighbor-hood. Perhaps a little more exotic, but pehaps
less desirable in some eyes, it is also available in an amazingly
bright fushia. This color matches that
of lychnis coronaria almost exactly, an unbeliveable accidental
seedling. I say this because I know of no other perennial offered
to date that can make that claim.
