What are the pros? Graceful Blooms, Overall Vigor
What are the cons? Late Bloom, Huge Size of Plant
I think it must have been October before I saw the first blooms on these, so a bit disappointing in that respect. However, they were tremendous bloomers when they finally got started. I was so worried the buds would get zapped by frost before they opened! Fortunately, they were growing in a warm, sheltered spot, and I had several trick-or-treaters comment on the "pretty flowers" beside the front entryway, and they remained in full bloom up through Thanksgiving Day. It looked as though I had a fountain of flowers spilling over my front steps. I am not sure I will grow them again, though, due to the extreme late bloom aspect (and they do get huge--definitely best to plant these in the background. Come to think of it, maybe they'd be nice companions for Dahlia...).
