Great color.

I didnt go for any of the new intros this year. Most of my purchases were one I have grown before but lost over the years.

Stunning color, Frank!

I purchased two 2018 releases, Bloomquist Mike (LAC DB) and HollyHill Black Cherry (oversized pom, black red). Neither of them have bloomed yet, but I will post pics when they do!

Nice! I had HH Jeanette for a few years, but then lost it. HH has some great flowers.
