  • I bought this plant one spring and put it in a blue pot. Loved it so much I cut it back and overwintered it, above freezing, for the next 3 years. It came back each spring and grew even more beautifully. Recommend it to anyone who can find it.

  • I loved the plant when I saw it at the nursery - it was in full bloom - I have not been able to get more than one bloom at a time - I have moved it to different location as it is in a pot - I have used bloom fertilizer and still no luck - I will try putting it in the ground - please tell me what I am doing wrong . I love Proven Winner plants.

  • I got this plant this year at the nursery in a pot that was pre planted your picture doesn't do it justice. It's beautiful . I just got a email today from Kerry Meyers that does a news letter for proven winners . And she told me that it wasn't for my zone so I won't be able to plant it in my garden. Kerry Meyers is the best if you have any question you get the answer the next day. And their very personable not just any plain answer. She got me hung on proven winners I love their products. If you live in the zone that you can plant this do so it's beautiful. Keep up the good work and I think you should be thankful you have Kerry on staff . I would give this plant five stars. I hope my nursery has it next year if not I'll order it.

  • I ordered these plants last year, and I will do again this year! The plants arrived perfectly packaged and ready for planting. Each plant I planted grew to a height of three feet. Ordering from Proven Winners was clearly a "proven winner!" Anyone considering mail ordering plants should feel confident about this company and its products.
