'Tango' creates a real splash at the front of a border, its flower spikes bursting with flaring trumpet flowers each an eye-catching fiery orange-red above scented grey-green foliage. Opening in midsummer it continues flowering into autumn helping to bridge the colour gap that some gardens suffer from in August.
Neat and compact, it makes a sizzling partnership with red or purple foliage, ideal for a container on a sunny terrace, or play it cool with white flowering companions. This veritable bee-magnet thrives in a free draining soil in a sunny site, but be aware it is a short-lived perennial and is likely to die after 3 years.
