Gardeners' Notes:

Positive trudybb On Dec 15, 2014, trudybb from Youngsville, LA wrote:

I received 2 small rooted cuttings in August that got a late start but are blooming in Dec. in zone 9 in pots. It's described as pink but they open a peachy pink that darkens to an exotic coral shade as days pass. The flowers are large with wonderful 2" points & are very fragrant. One flower lasted 10 days probably because of ideal 70* days & 50* nights.
