This is a very pretty plant, but since I planted it last year it has gotten about twice as big as I expected! My garden is teeny, so I think I will have to find a new home for it next spring.
(The plant tag said 18-30" in three years--it's already 36" plus)

I purchased this plant last Fall. It started flowering this Spring, around the beginning of June. The blooms are beautiful and long-lasting. Stems are strong enough in the beginning of flowering season, but have a tendency to plow around the end of July. We are now at the beginning of August and all blooms are a dull pale brown: I have cut them all and for the moment, there are no new buds...
