These bicolored flowers a work of art, the stripes across the sepals look as if they were hand painted. Not only does it produce a high quantity of blooms through the season, the nodes are really close together so the flower cover is dense. This looks amazing on an arch—like a long brush stroke of sheer floral color up the side. It draws attention to the arch, signaling where visitors should enter an area in the most charming way possible. It's also striking in the mid to back border, on a tall obelisk or along a fence.
