Naples bloomed for me the first season after I planted it. There is striking contrast between the standards and the falls, yet there are subtle variations in color both within the standards and within the falls. Grows and blooms nicely in my garden which has shallow soil and not a lot of moisture.
May, 2009 -- In addition to the above, Naples multiplies nicely. A very nice cultivar.
