Very pretty bloom and lots of blooms. I found three of these plants in a run down nursery in Huntsville, Texas on a trip there last year. From the three plants I got a lot of plants from the seeds and the underground runners. It's very hot here and the blooms are a little shaggy so I'm going to put them in a less sunny spot. There's an East Texas native version of the same plant which I hope to make a switch next year.
