Fabulous plant

5

When I bought these dormant plants in small 9cm pots, I thought they might not amount to much. How wrong I was! By late August they were 7 foot tall and laden with flowers, this display went right on until October. Very pleased.

What a Wonderful Show

Lemon Queen is well-named. Brought a wonderful late display of pure lemon, very plentiful flowers to back of border. Lasted for weeks and weeks. Sturdy stems which coped well in a wind. Bees of all kinds loved it and were a joy to watch on a sunny day.
