These are worth having for the scent alone. I bought some last year for pots and although some of them survived over winter, bought another batch as not only do they look good, the vanilla smell is wonderful. They did better in the semi shade in my garden.
Tried these for the first time this year in pots. Performed well in shade and each plant grew about 8 inches across. Flowered from later summer to early December. No mildew at all. Found them very similar to the New Guinea style
I bought 2 trays of these last year and although they seemed slow to grow at first they proved to be an amazing asset to my garden. Every one of the plants thrived. The foliage is lovely and glossy and the flowers are stunning. The blooms are really big and vibrant and they last and last. Were still displaying well into November both in the pots and in the beds. I have ordered again this year and I think this will be my go to plant and supplier from now on. Outstanding beauty for so little effort. Not one was touched by slugs - perfect. Love them.
I bought these earlier this year they were lovely healthy plants when they arrived and they are still blooming now in December, I couldn't ask for better quality. I had a mass of flowers in the summer, I wish I could include a photo with my review as it would speak for itself. I'm on the web site now looking to order more for 2019 season, I don't want to risk them being out of stock.
