    • I'm growing it in Georgia and the peach color is beautiful and long lasting for me. It gradually pales to a yellowish color, but I deadhead at that point and get more peach. Love this plant...

    • My Firefly Peach Sky was absolutely stunning with its fern-like foliage when I received my 2 quart sized plants. I planted them in May (after Mother's Day and no more sign of frost) and a month later they are taller, fuller and blooming. They do not have much color yet but I am still enjoying the different and interesting texture they bring to my landscape. Insects and pests are not bothering them like other plants and they adapted well to my Chicagoland clay soil. It has been very dry recently so they are receiving water each morning through drip emitters at the root ball. Both plants seem very happy in their full sun spot.

    • While the plant grew very well, regardless of weather, I am disappointed by the color. I bought this variety to have the peach color, but it only remains peach for one day-at most. In hot weather it turns a dirty, pale yellow and in cooler weather turns orangey red. The plant does bloom for a very long time, but I would not say the color description is very accurate for my area (7a).
