      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
    • This is my third year with “Miss Molly”. I had two but this past winter and spring was just brutal and I lost one. The survivor is just beautiful. Loads of blooms. This summer has been very hot and dry. I thought about moving it to get more sun but I decided against it. I believe that’s why the other Miss Molly died. I moved it in June because it just wasn’t growing and it did not appreciate it. I

    • I bought one plant two years ago. It was beautiful. The next year it did not seem to be getting leaves even by early summer, so I bought a new one. The first one then started growing. This year neither bush produced a leaf. Sad : (
