Blooms have yellow edges that darken to a rich apricot in the center. The compact 12 in. (30 cm) tall plants offer bright green foliage and a tidy uniform habit. The flowers bloom from the beginning from summer into autumn. Arizona Apricot is free-flowering, blooming heavily without vernalization, covering the plant with bright blooms that look great in mass.
