I bought this plant on impulse at the garden center without knowing what it was/how to care for it. Used in a pot by itself. I neglected this plant after it looked a little scruffy last winter in CA and thought I was going to have to toss it. I cut it all back in preparation, and it started blooming like crazy with fresh new green growth as well. It's on its second year, now planted in the border. The bees go crazy for the flowers even when they look half done. Would recommend.

This amazing plant combined with Supertunia Vista Bubblegum is what got me hooked on Proven Winners plants!! It says this only blooms in the summer, but it bloomed ALL season long in my Zone 8 garden. I sheared it back a few times to keep it looking tidy. The bees love it too! So definitely include this one in your pollinator garden!Emily C, South Carolina, United States, 1 year ago
I love this plant. I deadhead/shear it after blooming and it reblooms very quickly. It bloomed all summer for me! A very low maintenance plant.Tiann, Indiana, United States, 1 year ago
This is a great plant. Very hardy! I transplanted these last year and they came back better than ever. Requires very little care. The white flowers are beautiful and contrast the deep green leaves nicely. Can be seen from across the street! Blooms are very long lasting. Gives great confidence to a beginner gardener!M.

Nice, tidy, plants with long-lasting flowers. Bees love them. They look good with red petunias and Russian sage Denim n Lace. If they all survive the winter , I’ll be even happier.Patricia WIlliams, Ohio, United States, 2 years ago
