|Apricot Sparkles has done well here. It consistently reblooms every year into October/November. Great front of border plant. It polys a few times each year. Very fertile.

|I bought several Apricot Sparkles to use as an alternative to Stellas because I like the color better. They are pretty when they bloom and I like the small scale. However I have not found them to bloom as much or as long as many of my other DLs.
Old gardeners never die. They are just pruned and repotted.

|In my experience, it quickly clumps up and then stops blooming. I ditched it after a few years. I know that sometimes Stellas do this too, but this one always had low bud count to begin with. Blooms were so-so.|

|I was very surprised to read the other reviewers comments about Apricot Sparkles. It has been in my garden for a few years now (2-3) and maybe it is due to the soil, but AS has bloomed and rebloomed for me. I have two clumps of it. I certainly hope it doesn't stop blooming next year or it will be gone.
I don't remember it having a very high bud count, but the pretty little blooms are cheerful.
I am at work now, but will add pics and maybe more info later.
Well, I just looked up Apricot Sparkles on my home computer and found I got it in 2015. It bloomed from the first week of June all the way until the first week of August both in 2016 and 2017. Not too shabby!
This picture was taken on 7/29/17. Not the greatest pic, but you can see there are several scapes still coming on.
It does sparkle!
