I purchased 5 bareroots off the bargin rack at a local home improvement store. Two didn't make it, but the other 3 are doing great. I remember these as from my childhood, my mother and grandmother had them and they called them Granny's Bonnet's. Flower is about 2 to 3 inches with long spurs. Unfortunately, the pictures do not due the real flower justice. My wife had never seen them before and has fallen in love again.
