This is a much larger plant than the description leads you to believe. Mine was 4 feet high and 5 feet wide after just 3 years so it had to be moved because it completely outgrew the area in which it was planted. Although it is pretty, it was quite a bit of work to move it and that could have been avoided if the description was correct. It is not a small plant!

I planted this a couple of years ago and it really has been slow to get going. The foliage looks fine but the plant is extremely slow growing for me. I have heard the bloom of this variety described as an early spring flush of flowers covering the plant with later sporadic repeat bloom. All I see is a couple of flowers here or there throughout the season nothing that would make this a plant someone would want in their garden . I'll give one more year and then rip it out if nothing improves.
