Gardeners' Notes:

Positive silkroad On Nov 9, 2010, silkroad from Lady's Island, SC (Zone 9a) wrote:

This is an enthusiastic spring bloomer. From a distance, the flowers appear white, but a closer inspection will see a "lemon glow" in the center of the fairly large blossom. Once established, it has proved to be fairly drought tolerant. No problems with pests or diseases. Just give it enough room to breathe. Slow grower. I recommend it highly.

Not in its permanent position but it will be close by since it seems pretty happy here.
The flowers do glow in the lower light area and call you in for a closer look.
