    • This plant was kept in the shade and after it lost all its blooms, it no longer produced bloom. Buds were there but did not open.

      Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.
    • I bought the blue and the white versions of this plant. I have a deep rectangular planter located on my porch that only gets 1 or 2 hours of direct mid-late afternoon sunlight and these plants performed very well. They bloomed a long time. I will buy them again this year.

    • Outstanding! This is a must for your shady areas. I grew this last year and the color stands out in the shade and bloomed all summer long

    • This is one of my favorite plants, a very good bloomer for shade, even total shade. I have trouble finding it as no garden center here in Nashville, except one, has even heard of it. The one that knows it usually cannot find it for sale. Glad to see Proven Winners offering it to garden centers. I give this plant the highest star possible.

    • I grew these last year and was more than pleased with them. They bloomed continuously through the season and were very easy to care for. I would recommend them for all levels of gardeners. The flowers were a beautiful rich purple and never showed signs of wilting or illness throughout the growing season. Mine were both planted in containers, in full shade on/near my south facing patio. Even after a short vacation with no care they didn't look worse for wear, unlike some of our containers. Everyone who visited over the course of the summer/fall commented on these pretties, especially those who visited regularly. I would highly recommend the browallia to everyone looking for a hardy annual to brighten up shady spots and it will be one of our "What's New, What's Hot" product recommendations for 2016 in Alberta Gardener, Ontario Gardener and Manitoba Gardener magazines!

    • Beautiful, prolific flowers. I searched for years to find a colorful ever-blooming plant for a shaded are on patio. This is perfect. Only problem, I am having trouble finding replacement plants in my area.

    • I searched endlessly for a good plant to use in a shaded area adjacent to my house entry. Finally I tried the Endless Illumination Browallia and was amazed. It grew prolifically and bloomed consistently the entire summer and fall seasons.Unable to find the plant the following year in local nurseries, I am ordering the plant for the 2014 season and look forward to another rewarding year of beauty.
