HVH: "Bon Temps' (which means "Good Time" in French) blooms steadily with vivid 7-10" multi-colored flowers in bands of yellow, peach, pink, soft lilac, and red. In strong sun, 'Bon Temps' flowers fade to soft pastel colors. The bush is full, strong, and medium-sized. 'Bon Temps' is a Gerlich/Dupont hybrid."
