Cherry Ice Cream Smile is a favorite here. Its blooms are so cheerful that it always makes me smile when I see one. It is an evergreen, and even though I grow it in a pot it seems to bloom each spring and sometimes reblooms in the summer. I give it a definite Thumbs up

'Cherry Ice Cream Smile' appears to be a much larger flower to me than the hybridizer's description of 6.25", and in my garden I suspect it is. It definitely stands out with it's yummy cherry parfait-like face. In Vermont, this flower blooms mid summer...right smack in the middle of July. I don't usually get a re-bloom on this one.
