P. Smouthi

SMOUTHII (France 1845) HH, red, single, very early, 36" (tenuifolia x lactiflora)
This herbaceous hybrid with bright scarlet blooms flower very early, just a few days before Tenuifolia, but is distinctly different from the Chinese varieties and is not as hard to propagate. Cut leaf foliage looks good even after blooming making a wonderful border plant.
