Wait was worth itReview by Keith - Huntley, IL Posted on 2012-12-01 19:58:16
I planted 2 of these in the spring of 2011. They didn't look like much back then. Late this summer they finally produced their "plumage". They look great out there, very ornamental. Haven't seen any diamonds yet due to lack of dew.
