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.
