Good Qualities

Great color (7); Picked as a bunch per plant; Interesting ‘flowers’. Blooms early when not much else is happening. Would be good bedding plant, not a cut flower; Vase life, height; Easy to cultivate; Straight stems, all stems good sized and used unusual “flowers”–actually leaves; Overall plant appearance; Early.

Problems

Too short (4); None (2); Flowers seemed to brown on edges unless picked immediately; Color my fade in intense sun; Contrast of rose to green in mediocre. Have melted down in heat. Slow to germinate; Too branching, no good stems; Poor stems due to growth habit; Does not produce as well as the blue.

Comments

Similar to Clary; They all look alike; Would have to think about planting again. Somewhat washy rose color, others vibrant; All colors did okay in our cold wet summer; Very well liked!; Not good cut flower; Interesting cut; Nice landscape plant.
