Rarely sets seed pods, resulting in a longer bloom period. Splendid along pathways, or in groupings and mixed containers. Evergreen.

Nice appearance and healthy. Adjusted immediately to planting.

Wonderful Service

My Baby Pete's arrived at the Garden Center as promised and were in beautiful condition when I planted them in my garden. Unfortunately, although they should be "deer resistant", my neighborhood herd did not get the message and have eaten quite a bit off of each plant. I can only hope they will survive long enough to flower!
