This beautiful specimen was exhibited at the GS2019 convention show in class A07. It’s not as large as the cultivar can grow, but very nicely illustrates the dark coppery leaves, the bright orange calyces and the yellow flowers with red markings. While not labeled as such, it appears to the cultivar generally known as C. pulchella ‘Copper Leaf’, although there are several other bronzy or dark-leaved forms.

The plain green leaf form can be seen on another page. An antique print page is here.
