I planted one of these this spring, not expecting much. A beautiful plant, about 3 feet tall, with dozens of 1.5 inch wide by 2.5 inch deep light pink, bell-shaped flowers. By carefully removing the spent florets, they are quickly followed by two or three replacement blooms. Now I expect to see these blooms in my garden for months. A lovely sweet candy-like floral aroma. They may need some staking or support, but I kind of like the weeping shape they took in my garden without support. I understand they are biennials; I definitely will try to replant more of these in my garden next year.
