Flowers are small, about the size of a quarter but no less adorable. Overall plant size is about 12". Sweet fragrance. Mine are planted inground, zone9, get some shade. Good one for southern gardens.

UPDATE 02/2013: Blooming for the 3rd year. Definitely reliable. I can't tell whether it has multiplied.
