Reviews
  1. good, but could be better

    By Sandra Harris 17-08-2011

    they grew to a medium height (about 3 foot) and flowered quite profusely. however the blooms cannot 'hold' themselves as the petals are attached very loosely and will fall in even a slight breeze. nice if you catch a look before they deteriorate. gave me more seeds than i bought though, so its a solid investment.
