They’re not kidding when they say huge blooms! Mine have flowers 9” across. I got busy last year and neglected to plant them until after several frosts. I have still been busy this year and have neglected to fertilize them at all or water them as they deserve. The one thing they do get is sun, and they have rewarded me with the most jaw dropping flowers I’ve ever seen. I would absolutely recommend these to anyone who loves showy but not finicky flowering plants.
