ooohhhh this is nice Sprtiz, not seen this variety before, does it get big?

28 Jul, 2009

 

No - its height is about 2', I suppose.

I didn't know there's a white one, Louise? I'll take a look. :-)

is it oneof the big headed single flower varieties... i have seen some a bit like it as cut flowers that grow about 18" - 2ft... but never as a garden plant and not as lovely as this....

28 Jul, 2009

 

Yes - the flowers do grow singly - about 3" across. I don't cut flowers for indoors (except Sweetpeas and S. Williams) so I don't know how they get on in a vase.
