Plants shipped in fall require winter protection. We recommend transplanting to a 4" pot from a plug, not a larger size container if you receive the plants in the fall. Grow with 50 – 55° F nights and 55 – 65° F days. Facultative Long Day plant. Daylength extension up to 16 hrs. has proven beneficial for promoting flowering. Low pH can be fatal.
Calm, fragrant, soft pink flowers of great size, fragrance, and substance adorn this long blooming perennial. The highest rated Pink in the Mt. Cuba Center trials from 2007 to 2009.
