Maintenance Notes: 

Prefers a good, loose soil, but is very adaptable. pH adaptable, air pollution tolerant, withstands city conditions. Does not need heavy pruning. Pruning is best done immediately after flowering. Old stems can be cut to the ground. Fertilize in spring.

Tiny plant, big color!

This miniature, upright selection delivers more flowers per inch to create an outstanding spring display. A very compact, dwarf plant which provides lots of spring color in a small space.

  • Planted springof 2016 and it grew well in a hot, dry summer with weekly watering. Pretty poor soil conditions too. Didn't do much this first year, but it survived. And that says a lot for the area I planted it in. Can't wait to see it next spring.
