I had the same issue as the two previous reviewers: green short plants (about 3-5in tall) doing almost nothing. It occupied my small sunny garden ground but only has two blooming flowers on each plant on today June 19, while my other catmint, salvias are blooming happily. I bought at Lowes last year on sale. I will move them to a different location and give another year to try.

I had the exact same results as D. Schutz. I ordered them because I couldn't find them in any of our garden centers so this was costly. I'll give them until next season to see if they actually bloom, but will rip them out if they don't. I heard such rave reviews about Proven Winners so this was quite disappointing and am hesitant to order from them again.Novice Gardener, 1 year ago
Disappointed in this plant. I have two in my patio boxes that are doing next to nothing. They’re short (approx 3” high) and green as green can be but I have only had one flower on either so far this year. Meanwhile my white magic wand variety is thriving! Will be digging these up and going with something different next year.D Schutz, Georgia, United States, 2 years ago
This plant is so cute. I love the baby pink blooms on it. Did very well in my garden and bloomed twice last summer.Farah, Ontario, Canada, 2 years ago
