Comments: A shrub that is easily transplanted and will grow under less than ideal soil and water conditions. Subject to verticillium wilt. Best reserved for locations in the upper South. Does not bloom uniformily in the hot, humid lower South. Where it does well, this shrub is quite sensational in bloom.
