Liz at Selman's Nursery, located in Eudora AR. rooted this bush for me. She had a big one and I thought it was so pretty. However it does get top heavy. The root system is not very strong, certainly not strong enough to hold up a heavy top. Carrel has this one tied at the back to the fence. This has grown about 4 ft. since last winter. We trimed it after it bloomed last September. The first one I planted died over the winter. Liz gave me another one. I had been looking for plants that bloom in September.
I hope you have enjoyed this new page on my blog. Thank you for watching my garden grow and bloom, I hope you are growing one of your own. Happy gardening to you from Carrel and I, Juanita.
