What a pleasant surprise these have done so well in swfl brutal heat full sun, they are such a delight to see every time I step outdoors I have them as a border in my front garden and some in a pollinator garden in my backyard they are always blooming I have to try the other varieties. I'm hooked on growing these beautiful flowers.
