Its one of the those Costco offers a long time ago. I have neglected and not watering and let it crowded out by a lot of plants 8-9 yrs ago. Guess what? It came back to life when you change your mind and give it some care and its a nice standard size plant med height and med decorative size bloom. One nice aspect of it is the stem is strong enough to support the bloom, not flimsy like most new variety. It works great in windy SF.
