In our opinion
Starfire is one of the best summer blooming perennials. The intense cherry red
blossoms explode from the garden from early July through August. The plants are very quick
to form clumps of dark green foliage that contrasts sharply with the vivid red flower
heads. Starfire is a very prolific bloomer - we have seen as many as a dozen flower
heads on the same plant.
Plant in full sun and provide a rich well drained soil. Fertilize in early
spring with a top dressing of compost and bone meal. Liquid feed with compost tea or
fish emulsion just as buds begin to form in midsummer. Remove spent flower heads to
prolong flowering. Keep plants well watered during hot dry spells.
