"Sunsatia Peach" blooms heavily all season. It begins in late February and ends in late October here in my zone 9 garden. Stays compact and doesn't get leggy and is evergreen here. If I had to choose one, this would be my FAVORITE border plant.

A breeding breakthrough in Germany led to this new series. Peach is compact upright instead of mounded trailing like others in the series.
