A Fairbanks gardener tells me lychnis arkwrightii does fine in their gardens. This is a new variety I'm anxious to see if it does as well. This new variety offers larger flowers 1.5 inches across and more of them. The brilliant orange-scarlet color is much sought after as it totally lights up the garden but it doesn't stop there. The foliage is also totally awesome with a purplish-bronze flush. Combine with Anemone Sylvestris, Allium Glaucum, hosta.
