So Lovely!

These flowers were so easy to grow and were lovely in cut flower bouquets. They were long lasting both on the plant and cut. I am so excited to grow even more of these next season!

I have several good looking plants,looking forward to flowers thanks jill

An autumn confection!

An elegant addition to the cutting garden. Mine are just beginning to open on Labor Day in zone 3-4. Each plant is producing 3-4 large blossoms on long stems, in less than ideal growing conditions. A lovely, semi-exotic looking flower.
