Pagoda Flower4 May 2020I'm taking a chance with this plant hoping it flourishes , arrived in good condition. I have prepared the soil and planted on the same day it arrived in the post giving it every chance to survive, 2 weeks later since planting its starting to look good.
Hi Chris, it's pretty tough and should be Ok. We just try and be conservative in our advice as we send plants to alltypes of gardens and gardeners. Ours are in full flower now and covered with butterflies. It's a fantastic plant for nectar feeders, hoe you get plenty of flowers soon!
