First season in our garden, and we love it. It has bloomed very well.

One of my clearest pinks here in the UK, true pink here not peachy, eye is not always clear in the UK climate but it is always beautiful. Good strong plant and fertile both ways here. In periods of good weather the eye is very pretty.
