Wow, this is a keeper! Stunning visually and was easy in grow.

I always wonder when I buy seed if it will grow well and live up to the hype? Our expirence is that this Starship is stellar class. Grew quickly from seed with some plants blooming the first year. Even small potted plants overwintered well (Seattle). Then they reignited the 2nd year to full size, blasting forth spikes covered with long lasting, brilliant scarlet colored flowers. The plants stand upright without staking, unlike other older varieties we have grown. They are green leaved not bronze and this was a beautiful contrast ... like Xmas in July. Starship then bloomed continuously until frost, which kept the revisiting hummingbirds quite entertained. Thus, I can reported being mesmerized by this beautiful thing and not burned. Constellation Suggestion: we paired Starship with Canna Tropicanna which made it look like it was soaring out of fire! Riveted our eyes there from across the yard. So Starship holds her own visually against any other plant. Stunning contribution to our yard. Thank You!
