Perennial. Monarch butterfly host plant. A vigorous, hardy, and rugged grower, plants are about two feet tall. The spiky leafed stem carries large bracts of dozens of red buds which turn orange as they open. It prefers full sun and a well-drained soil. The seed pod can also be useful as an everlasting.
