Gardeners' Notes:

Positive sdagutis On Apr 15, 2006, sdagutis from Oakton, VA (Zone 7a) wrote:

'Blaauw's Pink' is a Kurume hybrid that blooms in early spring, it is also marketed under the name 'Glory'. Flowers are a rich pink hose-in-hose with a darker center. The deep green leaves complement the flower color beautifully. Like most Kurume hybrids, 'Blaauw's Pink' forms a dense compact mound about 3 feet in height.
