  • Posted by CA_Laurelei on May 4, 2023 9:31 AM concerning plant:
    Re-blooms very reliably 3-5x a year in my zone 9a. This one seems to want to flower at any time. Excessive heat or drought? Wet cold rain and snowy winter? Does not bother her. Scented and holds in vase nicely when nothing else is blooming in winter including December and January. It rarely rests here and bloomed first season after planting. If looking for very reliable re-bloomer this has worked well in my zone.
