I love these! I have a hard time growing anything in my north facing, dense clay soil and somehow these flowers were blooming non stop and we’re going crazy. I live in a city known for constant drastic weather changes and somehow despite being hit with a few freezes during early summer they still performed beautifully! If I would’ve known how well these were going to be I would’ve planted an entire pathway with these only lol.
