Positive a5footsea On Mar 17, 2010, a5footsea from North Vancouver, BC (Zone 7b) wrote:

This is the beginning of year 3 with Constance and I couldn't be more pleased. It is performing better than I expected with a full flush of blooms in early spring (zone 7b) and then a more modest re-blooming in late summer. Foliage is a beautiful bright green that started filling out in late February.
