Reliable bloomer, gets rather tall for me, around 4 ft. Looks great mixed with shorter plants but close enough to enjoy delicate pink veining of the flower

I first planted Fuji Pink last summer. It bloomed very nicely for quite a long time and required little care--although I did deadhead it. It was slow to come up this spring and I thought perhaps I'd lost it, but the foliage is now growing well and I expect it will be even better than last year.

Beware that the pink color is very pale, almost white, although the veins are a true pink.
