I purchased a 1-gallon plant from Evergreen in September 2011 and planted it in the Camellias And More garden. The flowers have a very interesting form. Got rather floppy in late spring 2012 and burned a little in the early July heatwave. Did well in 2013 until deer ate the stems and many flowers. Could have been rabbits eating the lower stems.
