  • Hardiness from zone 3 to 9
  • For 2.5 quart containers or larger, suitable for spring, summer and fall potting
  • No vernalization necessary
  • Blooms nonstop from spring through fall
  • Outstanding pot and garden habit. No flopping
  • Flowers size is larger than a quarter

Initially, we will offer 2 selections, ‘Watermelon Ice’ PPAF and ‘Strawberry Tart’ PPAF, with more varieties to follow.
