*** Growing near Houston, TX: sub tropical zone 9a. Mild winters, hot, extremely humid summers that last half the year. ***
Purchased- Vintage 2011.
April 2013- This has been a very fast growing plant. It is now a little better than 4x4 and flowers almost continuously. The flowers do shrink some in the heat, but they keep coming anyway.
10/13- Plant died after I dug it up to move to new garden.
12/13- New plant purchased from Rose Petals Nursery.
5/2014 - Planted in new garden (raised bed).
8/2014- Growing very quickly. Already a lanky 4.5h x 3w. I planted this one next to Miss Caroline (also from RPN), because they seemed like spinster sisters and I like the color combo.
4/2016- size is 4.5h x 5w. There is a giant salvia growing under her that has decided to take over the world. I'll probably remove it and give the Miss some room to breathe.
2/28/2016- plant is about 7h x 5.5 wide. (still need to take the salvia out)
