I have had this one for 6 years. In my climate it is a very slow grower. I have never had to divide it yet. Stats are right on but I think it blooms a bit later here. It is fertile and I get good seeds from it. The flower substance is good, never fades here. I only wish it were a bit taller and increased better.

I thought I had this one, but I had Spacecoast Cranberry Breeze instead. They look very similar in color.
