Charleen, are your Cherub flowers white to the end of blooming or does pink suffuse them? Most online nurseries I've seen list Cherub as various shades of pink.

Reason I ask is that I was given a cutting of one my friend called Cherub, and the flowers are the palest, just barely pink. Made sense to me with the name . . .

This is what happens when you start plants from cuttings from friends, I know. Rolling my eyes. Mine is well over 7ft. and is in the ground. Very lanky.

Cherub should finish pink.

Yes Charleen,Flame is a nice double orange.I think it is one of Larry Smith's hybrids and a real keeper.

Flame is a double but like many doubles it can sometimes throw singles especially when young.Thumb of 2013-07-29/gone2seed/5783db
