    This is a pretty pale pink to peach color I describe as seashell. Mine got 25" tall this spring 2018 and bloomed large 6" flowers most of April and all of May. It's a "rebloomer" I got in a pkg. from Gilbert Wild & Sons in April 2017. They sent doubles of 15 varieties and all were healthy and hardy plants.
