Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral vossner On Apr 26, 2010, vossner from Richmond, TX (Zone 9a) wrote:

Fades quickly. It is a profuse bloomer but if I were to lose it, I would not replace. Much better cultivars out there. But perhaps if it's grown in a shady location it may retain its coloring longer.

Neutral Marlina On Jul 27, 2009, Marlina from Blaine, MN (Zone 4b) wrote:

This plant has huge flowers but they fade very fast. Doesn't bloom profusely and when it repeats only gets 2 or 3.
