Thank you for posting this, it is fabulous! I have been wanting one but I did not believe it was as pretty as the pictures. How long does yours bloom? Will it bloom again if you trim it? Lovey dubby Thumbs up Drooling

This one bloomed all summer long and well into fall. This is what it looks like in the spring--all red


Then red and white like the pic at the top.
Then, when it gets hot it turns more solid white. Really remarkable.
Then back to red or red and white in the fall.

Here's a cutting I started last year. It's already doing quite well.
