Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral Windy On Aug 31, 2012, Windy from Belleville , IL (Zone 6b) wrote:

I saw these at Lowe's and the beautiful deep red picture. They are not red, but a sort of mauve. Some of them were blooming so I knew they were not going to be the deep red color on the label.
I bought them anyway because of the name "Freedom" I liked and I also found the mauve and double blooms atractive.
