Of all the plants I have ever grown for continuous beautiful, colorful flowers, this one wins hands-down. It is still lush or even more so than when I bought it last Spring With additional water, it made it thorough 100+ degree heat this summer in Southern California, and is the most beautiful plant in my garden. It does not go through barren times, but is always beautiful and full of vibrant color. I never spray or fertilize it. Since we do not get freezes here very often, it may even make it through the winter. I am loading up the boat next Spring when they come in.
