Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

A perplexing color to identify, the tissue-like flowers of this intriguing new sasanqua bloom in various shades of pink with a hint of coral, and are plentiful at a young age. A semi-dwarf plant with spreading to rounded growth, the dark green foliage provides a perfect backdrop for an incredible display of blooms in the fall.
