Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Grinder12000 On May 30, 2011, Grinder12000 from Columbus, WI wrote:

Beautiful shrub/plant. Hummingbirds like it and it will take more space then you realize. A little gangly but it's a huge splash of pink starting the 2nd week of May and lasting about a month. I think I will trim more bottom branches next year though.

Neutral Todd_Boland On Nov 21, 2004, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

This plant is an American introduction, developed at Iowa State University. The flowers are developed in somewhat drooping clusters with narrow, tubular flowers. Very floriferous with a spreading habit. This American introduction is a little hardier than the French and German cultivars.
