Andrew, That's interesting. My coccineas, grown from PWS seeds are all (variations on) bright oarange/scarlet. Are they variable, do you think? I was wondering..

I think they may be Anget. I also have the wild form, and the flowers are orange/scarlet and much smaller

Thank you. I might risk leaving some of mine out.

Anget - I found a video on Youtube which shows the variation in the flowers which can be red, orange, or even yellow. They also vary in size

I'll look it out, thank you.

Andrew: watched the video. Astonished to see the yellow ones. They look lovely.
