Faithful and Durable
Reviewed By: Janice E. Manuel (Bella Vista, Arkansas)
Now in their third year since planting, my Prairie Mallows are really coming into their own. The flowers are much less spectacular than the catalogue picture, but I like the foliage and find them overall an attractive flower bed addition. BEST OF ALL, they didn't even stumble from this year's terrible Easter freeze. After a very warm late winter and early spring, putting everything weeks ahead of itself in growth, we had three very cold nights--one with a low here around 11 degrees. It was terrible for farmers, woodland critters will go hungry this winter for lack of acorns, and many landscape items took hits, with some perennials disappearing altogether. But my Prairie Mallows didn't seem even to slow down.

I was disapointed when they bloomed this year and are not red, but a purle-pink color. Not as showy as the picture. It is deceiving.

Have had for 3 or 4 years, took a while to get going, (plus I moved once),but they are hardy, even if I don't water them much. I only have a few spikes, not at all bushy like the picture- more wild looking as they grow. The color is a light purple, not anything close to red. The floweres last long. I would say if you don't mind waiting, and like a natural cottage feel, get some since they are kind of tall and add some charm and interest as they pop up.

Carmine flowers ? Not at all !
Reviewed By: Francisco Henriques (Jersey City, NJ)
I just bought 2 plants as it was the first time I ordered from Gurney's and didn't know what to expect. Well, the flowers are light purple without a trace of carmine. The picture in the catalog is deceiving.
