I saw this at the florist and fell in love! I think it might be Neil's Shennandoah? It was blooming beautifully when I bought it and after about two weeks after the blooms left, here it blooms again! How long can I expect this? I did cut away the spent bloom stalks...good idea? Thank you!

Beautiful plant.It will bloom for quite awhile,then might take a brief rest and start again.Yes,do cut off the spent bloom stalks unless you are trying to make seeds.

VERY nice! I LOVE streps! VERY easy to start new ones from leaf cuttings too! Here's mine!
I have since started a LOT of new plants from this one!

Gorgeous streps!
Tommy do you know the name of yours?
Michigan, could the variety name of your strep be 'Bethan' (Dibley)?
