  • For several summers I've put these plants in urns I have out front on the south-facing side of the house--with a lot of concrete in front of them so it gets hot there and they do great. Don't forget to water them, but otherwise they bloom profusely all summer. If I do go a few days during hot weather without watering them, they'll start to wither, but once I water them again for a few days, they come right back and start blooming again.

  • this plant is extraordinary!--- never stops blooming- even past frost-- no deadheading-- perfect in full sun-- trails beautifully- flowers so eye catching.
    My sad part is this isthe FIRST plant I went searching for this spring. It has now been overlooked by our nurseries in Harrison.
    wishing i could get to a nursery that carries this wonderful plant-- husband has Alzheimers-- cannot travel to other towns. Only possibility would be a ride to Fayetteville, Ar to any nursery there

  • Great for combination container plantings. Sun lover and I haven't had any pest problems with this. Self shedding, low maintenance.

  • This plant did not get near as tall or full as pictured and I had trouble with the flowers dying off and deadening throughout the leaves. I fertilized every 2 weeks and watered when dry. Not as heat/drought tolerant as lead to believe.

    Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.

  • Excellent performer- maybe a bit too vigorous to share the limelight with other plants. Give this one plenty of room.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.

  • Planted in early Spring and LOVED the early bloom - long before I put the Petunias in with it. Bloomed well til late July then quit blooming and died. All were planted at the same time, watered similarly, same exposure. ???????

    Marginally Adequate Performed below expectations but may be willing to try again.
