Update: Sparkler Guara
I was really high on the new seed - Sparkler Guaras. As they grew from seed to young plant I was impressed. But after blooming for about 2 months now my final conclusion is they rate about a "C". I will not replant anything that is lower then a "A-".
I have 150 Sparkler Guara plants in many ground and sun locations. I will admit that they are consistent, which is a plus. But they do not bush out like my other guaras (I have many others, all volunteers). They produce several lanky wanes (stems) at a time. The "wanes" are very long and produces one open flower at a time. Unlike others which can open 3 at a time producing a nice bloom cluster. So the flowers come and go without fanfare and a long wane is left. I tried cutting back with no improvement. Finally in a drastic measure I sheared a section down to about 12 inches. Will see how that turns out.
Again another acclaimed "winner" that is not a winner for me. Mine should have been a great yard for these guaras because volunteer guaras do so well in my yard.
Anyone else trying these?
