    • Gorgeous plant! The blooms simply glow! Does great as the thriller plant in a mixed container design. Grows and blooms in a lovely rounded shape.

      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
    • I planted three in a bed with Boomerang dwarf lilacs and vincas. They will rebloom if you cut off the "expired" bloom stalks. Mine are on their third flush of blooming. Lovely color.
