The old orange one used to be called Peruvian lily, my granddad used to grow it in his garden where it spread all over the place!
As Verdun says the so called cultivated one are temperamental about flowering,stop start should be in all their names!
The ones I have are grown in either pots or tubs depending on their size!
When Rock and Roll came out almost five years ago (that's when I heard of it anyway) I paid thirty six quid for three plugs, lovely flowers but they neither grow any larger or think about flowering now!
The best one with me is Indian Summer, lovely dark foliage with good coloured flowers, when it starts flowering in late spring it goes on until the frosts and multiplies quickly to fill up any pot or tub it is in!
