(zone 6a) Custard Candy is an outstanding performer! Tons of blossoms every year. Extremely Fertile both ways. Long lasting perfect blossoms; light yellow with a trace of pink and the plant is a quick increaser.

I love how delicate this looks and it is very hardy in my zone. Opens perfectly and one of my favorites.
