Fiery red flowers and a contrasting brown cone make for a lovely combination in this compact, long-blooming addition to the Butterfly series. A true red with slightly dropping petals, Postman stands out in any planting like a red-lighted beacon. Good companions for the postman are blue ornamental grasses, white and orange flowered perennials and coarsely textured leaves like ‘Black Ripple’ elephant ear.
