Yours are gorgeous! Mine are never what I want. They end sprouting in the fence row along with all the other weeds, in all sorts of odd, sickly colors. Hm. You must be feeding and speaking to them well!

Rob, I never feed them, rarely water them. Prune them a little in winter. The pink one is probably 30 years old, the lavender one maybe 15 or so. Maybe it's my micro-climate that is kind to them.

I like that they are double- so often you see the plain single ones all over the place. They are beautiful.

My neighbor has the plain ones along our property line, some of them are now in our yard and are a pain.. They show up all over the yard and garden. Would not mind yours, they are gorgeous. Well, I kept some of them anyway for the hummers.

Those are beautiful! I once had a lavender one. My aunt gave it to me having rooted it from a cutting. One year it didn't come back, we had some ice that winter. It made me sad to loose it.

That lavender one is so pretty, but would you look at the pink one against that sky! Wow.

Rhizo, that California sky is so intense, I think It's because of the low humidity
