I bought 6 of these at the end of the summer, so they are still on the smaller side. I am so beyond excited to watch them grow larger. They are beautiful and are still blooming at 23 degrees outside even with hard frost and light snow! I’m shocked. Only plant in my garden with new blooms and beautiful flowers! I want more and more! I 100% will be buying more in the spring. Perfect for tucking into any open little spot.
