Grown on the farm, we love the fiery colours of this very easy to grow perennial flower. The plant was originally named after the famous French botanist from the 18th century named Gaillard de Charentonneau. We originally obtained these seeds from Adaptive Seeds in Oregon when we were at the Organic Seed Growers conference in Corvalis Oregon. They were on an exchange table and were calling out to us to bring them home. They grow so well on the farm and we are so happy we gave them a new spot to show their colourful glory!
