Fertile both ways and a good grower in my area with no summer dormancy. Similar to web of intrigue but in my opinion a better looking flower. The parentage is missing on Faces of a Clown but I'd be willing to bet there is some Etched Eyes in it's bloodline somewhere. The foliage is thick and green not wimpy like some plants. The flowers are always above the foliage and the colors hold up well even on hot days. It's a good flower all around but I just wish the eye zone extended out a little further. There is a lot of blank canvas on the petals and sepals.
