Positive gardenermark On May 16, 2009, gardenermark from Fredericksburg, VA (Zone 7a) wrote:

This plant grows with no use of chemicals and I never give it special attention. The aroma is incredible. The color of the flower is a hot pink rather than the red listed in the catalogs and on this website. The only downside is the blooming period is 2-3 weeks depending on the weather. Heavy rain destroys the flowers quickly.
