Hi Meomye. I had one for about 7 years. It never got bigger than 2' up and across. It died a stem at a time last summer. It flowered for a long time every year before that. Being a sterile hybrid you don't get any berries so no babies.
It will be coccinea Fritillary, that describes the redness of it. A. vulneraria is yellow
