Blooms are beautiful but tends to have problems with leaf spot and mold immediately after spring blooming in the Pacific Northwest.

Very excited to add two large Robinsons to our garden today.
Found them for a mere five dollars at a clearance sale in
superb condition and growing fine. Will post pictures when
they are established and blooming.
