    This guy is fading fast (The blooms I mean) I never got around to taking a picture when it looked nice. It did really well this year.

    I'd guess at least 10 years, I have had it for about 5 or 6.

    Incredible! Look at all those flowers, fantastic growing!

    This plant has been on my wish list since last summer, still can't seem to find a source for it in Europe. One day!
