I don't think I could kill this plant even if I tried. It is a very vigorous grower and has good substance even in hot weather. I have had it for many years and will probably always have it. I love the dark colored flowers and don't have many of those in my garden. It is beautiful in a clump when blooming. Plant is both pod and pollen fertile which is a bonus. Stats are pretty true to registered stats.

@Hemlady
One of the crosses you sent me had the pod parent Serena Dark Horse x Forestlake Ragamuffin. Do you still grow that seedling?

I think I may still have it. I will have to check when we get a day without rain.
