North of our garden on the banks of Lake Champlain is the famous Fort Ticonderoga. From the overlook at Mount Defiance it is easy to imagine the British red-coats fighting alongside the early settlers in the French and Indian War.
TICONDEROGA is a tri-cornered, bright red flower with a gold throat and olive-green heart. It opens flat and consistently well even after a cold night. 3 to 4 way branching and 20 buds.
