Thick grass-like foliage adds great vertical texture to the mixed perennial bed. Stiff stems arise from the foliage bearing brilliant red and orange lily-shaped flowers. The colorful flowers open in summer and last to near fall which butterflies and hummingbirds flock to. Short internodes and long-lasting blooms make this perennial an excellent choice for bouquets and cut flower gardens. Excellent garden focal point or background plant for the perennial bed or border. 'Prince of Orange' is specially bred for its large seed pods that are used in dried flower arrangements and crafts.
