The 2 plants I bought labeled as Carin are exactly like the 2 that I dug up from the road in flower color. Carin was supposed to be silvery pink although this entry says red or fuschia. The only difference in the Carin and species is that Carin is a foot shorter. Could just be a nursery error, but a disappointment.
