Gardeners' Notes:

Negative coriaceous On Feb 27, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

As the pics show, the color is not a clear pink, but a muddy, washy, impure, grayish pink. Flowers are smaller than the species. I think its only garden value is the bragging rights it gives the gardener.

I usually prefer pink flowers to white, but for this variety, I give thumbs down.
