Negative rebecca101 On Jan 9, 2009, rebecca101 from Madison, WI (Zone 5a) wrote:

I did not like this plant very much - the flowers were indeed a lovely pale yellow color, but the plant overall was very messy looking. It had a scraggly sort of habit, and only a few flowers would open at a time. The overall impression was a bush covered with unattractive buds and deadheads. Needed constant deadheading to keep it looking somewhat presentable.
