What are the pros? low maintenance, natural
What are the cons? none
I ordered this because it's a NC native, not because I thought it was a beautiful flower. I am, however, pleasantly surprised.This spring I planted them in containers just a few weeks before my last frost date and then planted them in the ground shortly after. They're already blooming and are quite pretty.They're much redder than they appear in the image above and the foliage is a nice silvery green. They have a nice natural look. Best of all, they require absolutely no maintenance and don't appear to be bothered by any pests. I haven't watered them in weeks! I'll plant more this fall for blooms next year.
