This is an excellent plant of good substance. It's quite tall with large, beautiful blooms. The blooms are lovely and appear to change hues, depending upon the time of day and the light they are viewed in. They appear warmer and more peach or apricot shades in sun, and in the evening lean more toward a pinkish hue. High recommend.
