    • I bought this plant from Krismer Plant Farm in the spring last year I planted it near my house in the front. This spring it started to bloom for the first time. At first beautiful white flowers bloomed all over the bush, then just about two weeks ago they began to turn pink, as the tag attached to the plant said they would. Now almost all of the blooms have turned pink. It is beautiful. I love it. I am trying to find another spot in the yard to plant another one.
