This one is a bloom machine for me. Got it just last season and it put on a nonstop glorious show of blooms. Definitely in my top 10 of favorites.

I planted this Viticella in Spring of 2006 and it outperformed my wildest expectations. I managed to get 3 bloom periods from her by "Hard Pruning" ..Definitely two thumbs up on this one!
