I wanted Eyepaint for years after I saw pictures of it growing in other people's gardens. Finally I was able to get my own and plant it in my front yard half-round planters area. It really is as pretty as a picture.

Maybe some people are not that fond of single roses. I really like them. Something about the form and bloom is so striking and pleasing to look at.
