I got seeds and cuttings of 'Diana' from Samantha last fall. They rooted and the seeds were sown Feb.2018 and are now 6" plants. I hope to see a flower by this fall at least from the cuttings I rooted. I heard the seeds aren't viable, but Sam said she often finds volunteers under her large mature tree. Well, her seeds obviously have syriacus leaves, so we will see.
