An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.

  • Picked up one of these in mid May.
    Looked a bit worn but once I got it home and in a large pot this plant has performed well.
    Loads of vibrant red flowers and a sturdy build.
    Like most PW plants this needs minimal care; just water and fertilizer do the trick.
    Highly recommend.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
