Flower Description: Featured on the cover of our Spring 2019 printed catalog, and named for the little Italian Coastal town of Formia which in the ancient Greek mean 'Landing Place', where to this day the remains of Roman built breakwaters can still be seen. 'Formia' will give you a place to “land” in your garden each day to absorb the exceptional beauty of its black/red flowers with your eyes. The out to upfacing flowers of 'Formia' are free of spots and sport nothing but pure, rich color. A viewing experience when coupled with whites such as 'Saronno' and 'Gizmo' as a backdrop. This July bloomer ranges normally in the 3 to 4 foot range, but with feeding and care can easily hit 6 feet. Fragrant.
