Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral grik On Jun 20, 2010, grik from Saint Paul, MN wrote:

I planted this a couple of years ago and it really has been slow to get going. The foliage looks fine but the plant is extremely slow growing for me. I have heard the bloom of this variety described as an early spring flush of flowers covering the plant with later sporadic repeat bloom. All I see is a couple of flowers here or there throughout the season nothing that would make this a plant someone would want in their garden . I'll give one more year and then rip it out if nothing improves.
