Compared to 'Little Redhead' which is a deep red, 'Ragin Cajun' has orange red flowers, has more of a rounded habit, and is more floriferous. Attracts pollinators like hummingbirds and is a native woodland perennial, although it grows well in both sun and shade. From Tony Avent from Plant Delights Nursery.

It's a very versatile perennial-it grows naturally in either sun or shade. This perennial can be found growing in the wild in woodlands and along streambanks throughout the Eastern United States. It's wildly popular among wildflower enthusiasts and highly sought after.
