DESPERADO LOVE has only just begun flowering for me this season. It usually blooms in the first or second week of November here. This is one of my later flowering cultivars. It dies down in winter but always has foliage present. I haven't noted it as a rebloomer yet. It sets pods well.
The bloom today
It is not a rust bucket but it is definitely susceptible. I would rate it about 3.
Overall, it is an excellent performer and bloomer. A good-looker: it has blooms that the camera seems to love and the flowers cuddle together well. I use urea, alfalfa and Epsom's salts with success with it.
A delight over the years past.
