Good performer

Seed s are fairly pricey, but I got very good germination from the packet I purchased. I started my seed in the greenhouse in February and plants are blooming currently--good bloomer, although flowers are somewhat smaller than other cultivars (ie White Swan). Would definitely recommend.

I really wish I could review this one separately on two counts: 1) I'd give this FIVE stars for color, density of bloom, and hardyness, but (2) I'd rate it as a poor germinator, perhaps 2 stars. Out of a 10 seed packet, only 3 seeds germinated in my greenhouse with vigor, a few others germinated then "petered out". But WOW, what color and bloom quantity (and nice low plant form and branching) on this one. The color is stunning, too! And the plants that did make it also held over our NJ winter here VERY well, and second year performance on this beauty was amazing. It's so strong that I anticipate an even better third year from it. This is a GREAT cultivar...if only the germination rate could be improved!
