There is something about 'Orange Skipper's' large, vibrant orange flowers, each with a bold teak coloured cone that really draws the eye, especially when set off by its lush green foliage.

A recent introduction to the 'Butterfly Series', it is compact but punches high above its weight flowering from mid summer though to early autumn.  Perfect for a 'hot' themed planting scheme in a herbaceous border or sunny container, it also combines beautifully with airy ornamental grasses from summer through to winter, the combination of ageing seedheads is quite magical.  Beloved by butterflies and bees, it performs best in a good, moist but free draining soil in full sun.
