Hi, I was making a small order on the Maryott website and was trying to decide about CA.

If you grow it would you mind letting me know the pros and cons about it.

Thank you!

I'd have to say the plant itself is vigorous and makes fairly large fans, but I have this on my list to sell on the LA this fall if I can find the time to list. I bought it when it was new and expensive and have to say that sadly the blooms here have never looked much like the hybridizer's pictures. That has been a real disappointment, because I've held out hope that one day it would look like the pictures we saw. But alas, it was not to be, and sometimes the blooms don't open well. Sorry but this just doesn't float my boat.
Below are the best pictures I managed to get of it this year and they're not great.

Julie, thanks for being direct. I was wondering how close it looked to the AHS picture. I may pass on this one. There is just a ton of plants to choose from.
