A fantastic new hybrid from Timo Gabriel of Germany . This is a rather large plant in comparison to most red hardy varieties. The flowers are a very uniform deeply saturated color with a almost purple undertone in the red with a average flower size of 6". The pads are a rusty maroon coloration with will fade to a darker green as they age. Aaiko is a very good bloomer all season long and is quite the show piece.
Plant Aaiko in a large rectangular container 2 fee or longer as the rhyzome will grow quite large. Give a 5 foot radius growth area and plant at a depth range of 12-30" from soil to surface.
