I have recently purchased two of these plants,and so far I love them,the flower colours are stunning,starting yellow,then fading to cream and finally white,important to me is the fact that they attract Bees,which they do,and they also attract Hoverflies.So far this plant for me gets a positive result.

Broadway Lights is the Trademarked name, not the cultivar.

The cultivar is 'Leumayel'

'Broadway Lights' has performed beautifully in our gardens. The only draw back is it's awful fragrance. On performance, I would give it a "Positive +", but because of the smell, I have to negate that just a touch.

Like how the flowers start out yellow and mature to white. If it returns I will update my rating to +. Not had much luck with Shastas returning in the past
