    • Would love to find this to use in my basket combinations again! My customers have been missing it too... The variegated just doesn't perform for us... an waste of space and time! Definitely missed since Euro went out.

      Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
    • Made the huge mistake of planting this 10 years ago and have been battling it ever since. It wants to choke out the plants that it was suppose to co-exist with and spreads into the lawn looking for other flower beds to dominate. This is not a plant that should ever be in a PW pot!!!

      Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.
    • we treat these as weeds here in ontario. totally takes over lawns. I've gotten rid of only to be reinfested by neighbours.
