  • Posted by mystlw (Ohio - Zone 6a) on Jun 29, 2016 12:19 AM concerning plant:
    I ordered this plant as 2-double fans, but what actually shipped to me were a few small plants with only a couple of leaves each. I planted it into a container thinking that I would have to wait until next season to see blooms. Within three days, scapes began to form. My four tiny plants now have three scapes blooming or about to bloom, while still only having a few small leaves. Beautiful small-ish flowers, though perhaps they will be larger next year when my plants are bigger.
