Love the plantsReview by N Carter - Hinesville, GA Posted on 2012-08-01 14:25:21
Last winter I ordered six dorminant twigs, not believing they would grow. They are beautiful and so BIG. I definitely will order more later this winter.

This is the most beautiful flower in my gardens. LOVE THEM I have 4 now. My only complaint is they didn't start earlier and last longer haha
This is gorgeousReview by El - South Bend, IN Posted on 2012-04-14 01:06:09
I bought one of these 2 years ago. The first summer I put it in a pot because it was so small. It grew to a nice size and bloomed late in the season. At the end of that first summer we put it in the ground and trimmed it down. The second summer this thing exploded into a bush, mid to late summer it produced unbelievable huge red flowers. It is a real show stopper. I'm going to order another one. I planted it in a very warm sunny area. It is well worth the year you must wait to let it develop.
