I have this plant in full sun where it is thriving. It is two years old, performing very well, and certainly living up to my expectations. I did notice it was a bit floppy the first year, but by the second year most all of the stems were very sturdy. It is planted in average soil, but I made an effort to keep it well watered these past two years, though will probably water less now that it is "settled in." I'm hoping to take some cuttings and start a few more plants around the yard in a partly shaded area.

Third year in the ground, officially established and the plant has grown huge to 5'. The stems are definitely strong but the flowers are not as huge as I was hoping. As with annabelle you can get huge flowers but location, weather and soils play a huge part of how the flowers themselves grow. I have tons of flowers on my plant but I am lucky to get anything larger than 6" across, have a couple near 7". I don't see any specific reason to offer this plant over Annabelle, if price is a concern go for the one that isn't branded. I don't suspect that side by side you would be able to tell much of a difference except in stem strength. At 5' the flowers do not flop to the ground but do stay upright, even through heavy rain. Newer stems near the ground or the sides do flop however until they get old and thick enough to handle the weight.

I planted one of these this spring in a sheltered site that gets morning sun and afternoon shade. It grew quite a lot and flowered profusely with huge blooms! The branches did still droop somewhat in the rain with the large blooms though. I'm hoping that once it gets more established and older it will have fewer problems with that.
