i bought this in a 6 pack in early spring, desperate to have something flowering. 3 i planted in a pot and 3 in the garden - the ones in the pot have grown much faster than the ones in the ground. All 6 of the plants are slightly different colors, ranging from almost toatlly white to almost totally lavender. i like the combination a lot.
