They died within a very short time despite being watered regularly & placed in the same location as an established zaluzianska I have already! Not at all happy.

These plants have grown nicely and are bushy but as every thing else has grown so well they were a little swamped. My fault not your plants. As other plants are beginning to thin a little they seem to be doing well.
I would advise anyone having your plants to leave plenty of room as they do so well and grow and flower vigorously.
