It has very dense foliage, very few flowers but never seems to grow any taller. Disappointed. The plant is several years old, so it is well established. Any ideas? If it doesn't grow this year, it will likely be replaced.

My Sugar Tips are way taller than I expected at approx. 5 feet after only two summers. Foliage is gorgeous. Flowers are beautiful and plentiful even though their size is a little disappointing at only 2 to 2 1/2 inches across. Love 'em!Kim KitzmillerWest VirginiaUnited States6 years ago
