Thanks again to Alana for a start of this gorgeous flower. She said it's her favorite and now I must agree. We traded last Sept., so this spring the plants are established and really put on a show. Blooms started April 22 for about a month. The colors of this large flower are outstanding and it has the heaviest pie crust edge of any I have. Surprisingly, it barely fades in full sun all day. Definitely a winner. I'm so glad Alana shared some with me.
