Gardeners' Notes:

I just started growing these this year and they struggled a bit with some fungus at first (it rains constantly through the Spring), but bloomed profusely - some still are. I don't recommend anything near full sun (as is listed on the label). They definitely need part shade here in the deep south. Love the delicate blooms!
