New to me this year, grown from seeds from Prairie Moon Nursery 

A brightly coloured flower for dry savannahs or woodland margins. Attractive to hummingbirds. Can be short lived but will self seed if happy with their location 

Please check out the Prairie Moon listing at the link above for more details.
