I received a gift plant from Flowers By The Sea this spring in one of my three plant orders. I planted it by itself in a 16 or 18 inch container on the patio. It struggled, as it wanted more water than I gave it and then appeared to get covered in white flies or was it spittle bugs, I don't remember now, since I had to get rid of it months ago. The flowers were small, but beautiful.

I never got pics of the flowers, but to see them, click onto the FBTS site link.
