One of the best that I have. Very green and just in bloom this week. I have not had any problems with this one being in the hot afternoon to evening sun. Didn't survive the first winter.

This is another one of my all time old fashioned favorites! She is a sturdy upright with a strong thick trunk and a winter hardy. This bush is almost always covered with these delightful little blossoms. The hummingbirds like to hang out in her branches while they keep a look out for competition sneaking in for a sip.
