I am afraid I was disappointed with these plants. I did not realise how vigorous they would be. I put them in large containers with other plants, but had to remove them and put them in separate 8 inch pots.

The flowers are exquisite, just like the photograph, but they flowered inconsistently and were flowerless for weeks at a time. Paradoxically they are covered in buds at the moment.

Plants were mostly in good condition on arrival but some side stems including one in flower were broken off.
