I really love the daintiness of this flower. It grows on tall thin tubular stocks with pinkish-purple colored petals, similar to The Rose of Sharon. and has big bold yellow centers. The entire plant seems to wither a bit when in extreme heat, but bounces back as soon as that passes. Another great thing about this plant - it doesn't start to bloom until the end of August, when everything else is past it's prime.
