Can Any Of You Identify This Plant?


I don't do a lot of landscaping. But one of my customers asked about this flower. I said I'd have to research it. Can any of you identify this flower?

My wife likes them. We can't get them to last for the season. Get about 1/2 season out of them then they croak.
