This plant puts out a bush of flowers on top. Needs strong staking. Mine got powdery mildew.

'Harrington's Pink' is a blast of color late in the season when there's little else blooming. The plants are loaded with small, clear pink flowers and they tend to become top heavy when in bloom. Staking will keep them upright and from flopping on their neighbors.
