On Jan 25, 2006, Toxicodendron from Piedmont, MO (Zone 6a) wrote:

Circle of Love is a free-blooming selection with a good upright habit. The flowers face upward, and are usually 6 inches in diameter. The center of the flower is dark maroon, then a bright pink area, fading to a light pink or even creamy edge. The flowers have consistently lasted 3 days, both on the plant or in a vase. It is not nearly as showy or large as some others, but it has been a reliable producer of long-lasting blooms.
