I've had this variety in a large container now for over 8 years. It's with some other plants, so I really will have to re-do the pot at some point, but it has thrived and blooms very well every year. Not too large, reaching about 3 - 4 feet. A gorgeous colour with apricot buds fading to a pale peach with age. Highly recommended.
