Positive Oberon46 On Jul 7, 2010, Oberon46 from (Mary) Anchorage, AK (Zone 5b) wrote:

Grows to be about 30" tall and at lest 30" around. Needs support to about one third height. I use a green fencing material that has 2" squares and it disappears as the 'bush' grows. Flowers prolifically, then tends to collapse if not supported. Vibrant violet flowers.
