Blooms are initially white, but soon turn to bright pink. Foliage is green, becoming purplish red in the autumn. Mounding habit with average water needs. Best in moist, well-drained soils. Prune after flowering. Fertilize in spring. May need winter protection in colder climates.

Hello, BookerC1. Glad to see your post. I have been checking out the Gatsby Series and found little personal comments "out there". I assume you have this one. If so, thanks for posting as I have been checking this series.

One question though. They say that time is relative so, can you tell me about how long did it take for the white bloom to turn pink say in weeks? I saw its description online but it also said something like 'soon' or 'quickly'. Can you guesstimate how long it took for yours to turn pink?

I don't have it personally. I saw it at a nursery, and was intrigued, so I took a picture, and looked up information about it. Sorry I can't answer your questions! I saw them at Hornbaker Gardens, in Princeton, IL. You can try emailing them and asking!
