Grab your sunnies!!  'Alcazar's' striking poker head flowers which open yellow from fiery intense blood red orange buds herald the arrival of late summer but keep on flowering far into autumn. 

With their architectural and statuesque good looks, they make a fantastic statement plant for the garden but are also perfect for introducing bright vertical accents into a border, making it sing when earlier summer flowering plants are starting to flag.  A strong candidate for a 'hot' themed planting scheme, go for a knock-out exotic combination by mixing it with purples, deep apricots and reds.  'Alcazar's' lush evergreen foliage provides a valuable foil for other plants through the year. To thrive it prefers a deep, humus-rich, moist but free draining soil in full sun.
