Nice plant
Reviewed By: Bev M (OKC, OK)
These plants were an awesome size when I received them. They are doing nicely. I just planed them so I can't wait to see them bloom!

Too Early to Tell . . .
Reviewed By: Kim Hinkle (Six Mile, SC)
I ordered 4 of these plants, and planted them 3 days ago (zone 7B). They arrived healthy and in great shape. The foliage is narrow and long and is light green. It's too early to tell how they are going to perform, but I am looking forward to their long bloom time. I will add an update as they mature.

Easy plant
Reviewed By: Gretta (Colona, IL)
I liked this plant because it bloomed the same year that I planted it. It was easy, I just planted and watered. Very cute flowers.
