This little lady can stand on her own. Blooming with successive stalks instead of the usual all at once, lengthens the bloom season for My Kayla.

Hybridizer notes in catalog that stalks can have 2-5 buds and that its a vigorous grower. That is yet to be seen as this is the first year in my garden.
