This was a lovely color, but a very shy bloomer for me. Even though I tried to deadhead assiduously, the plants usually had only 1-2 blooms per plant, and the bloom period was not long. Was a weak grower. Also germination was very poor for some reason. I'm not sure if I just had bad seeds, or if this is characteristic of this cultivar.
