Beautiful flowers on a very hardy plant. I transplanted these when I first bought them, into containers that are now way too small for them in a position where they don't get enough water, and they are still blooming like crazy. The first few blooms on each plant were larger, and subsequent flowers have been slightly smaller, but there are a lot of them.
