As you can see from the photos I posted, Anxious was reblooming nicely for the whole month of November, even after freezing nights, in Virginia. Subtle colors.

" Anxious indeed is this prolific rebloomer. Standards and falls are a soft lilac with a subtle rim of honey on the falls' edges. Pale yellow beards. Pleasant full form. Rebloom begins just a few weeks after spring bloom."
