Reviewed 8th December 2015 by Mary

I bought these last season (cautiously as in the past I had purchased green envy seedlings which were a disaster and very mildew ridden). These seedlings remained healthy and looked great in the garden. The flowering season was of a long duration, enhanced by regular dead heading. A very robust and delightful plant.
