Great Plant, Plant is partial shade/morning sun. Afternoon sun makes the flower color fade, this is the only flower in my garden I've ever had burn up or fade in the sun. But it is a beautiful flower. I will relocate them in Spring.

An Orienpet hybrid, it is a very sturdy plant that I have never had to stake (and most of my Orienpets need it). The flowers are borne tightly on the very top of the stem, yeilding the most shapely and thick petals. They also carry a balanced fragrance.
