Partial to bold shades? This is the achimene for you. Richly saturated orange-red blooms with yellow speckled throats cover the Tetra Himalayan Orange achimene plants from early summer through fall, dozens and dozens of 2+ inch flowers. Plants grow to a compact 10" tall, the perfect height for brightening an office window.
