Awesome Plant
Reviewed By: C.Coppa (Olean, NY)
I just planted this in the spring and it has performed magnificently. More blooms then the picture shows. Really likes full light and no competition. I did stake this plant as the tip of the tallest flower stalk reaches my 5'6" head. The most beautiful pink you could ask for, can't wait to see if it blooms as beautifully again next year. I have manure (cow) compost, mixed with my native soil. I also mulch 4-6 inches with bark. It also received lots of moisture if the heavens didn't provide it weekly. LOVE IT!

not red
Reviewed By: T (Columbus, OH)
This plant is NOT red, but a light pink/lavendar. They are pretty, just be warned. Also, my plants grow to about 40+ inches tall - so plant in the back of your beds. If you are in a windy area the stalks will fall over and turn brown. Make sure to clip the stalks after they are done blooming and they'll rebloom.

disappointed
Reviewed By: Lynne (Smithville, OH)
Called Gurney's last year because the color did not match what I ordered, which was red. Mine bloomed a light lavender. Gurney was gracious and sent a replacement order last fall. Again, this summer, I still don't have carmine red blooms, instead they are a purple. The foliage is nice, but if you want red blooms, do NOT order this item. You will be disappointed like me.

They are not red
Reviewed By: Angela (Wright City, Missouri)
Like the other reviews stated these are not red they are light purple. They bloom nicely but I wish they were red. I am going to look up if there is a way to change the color by changing the ph of the soil.

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.

hardy
Reviewed By: Sharon (Aldie, Virginia)
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.

Not red
Reviewed By: Julie (Middlebury, IN)
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.

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.
