Show this off in your late summer landscape with the wild new pinwheel pattern of 'Spinderella'. Large, 8" white flowers have medium pink accented edges and a dark red eye. Dark green leaves form a tidy, dense, and well-rounded habit that will fit perfectly as the centerpiece of your garden. The impeccable habit is a great improvement over other varieties of this flower type.
Massive, tropical-looking flowers all the way to zone 4. Although later to emerge than most perennials in spring, these are fast-growing plants capable of adding an inch of new growth a day. Excellent at brightening up end-of-season gardens.
This plant grows best in full sun and moist, well-drained soil. It leafs out late in spring but grows very quickly. Cut it down in spring before new growth appears.
Plant the crown (where the roots meet the stem) just below the media surface. Bare root plants will have woody stems that can be several inches long, these will be above the ground.
-These are heat loving plants and they can be grown up to 80 degrees, just be sure the plants do not dry out.
-High light produces better branching, more flowers per plant and shorter plants.
-Never allow the plants to wilt or lower leaf yellowing, bud abortion and lower quality will result.
-These are vigorous plants and proper plant spacing is necessary for high quality plants, do not overcrowd.
-Summer Storm is a dark foliaged plant, however, the foliage color only develops with direct sunlight.
-Bare root plants can usually be potted and grown directly outdoors in late spring. Protect the plants from extreme cold as needed.
-Bare root plants should be used only in 2 and 3 gallon containers.
-Liners can be grown in gallon or larger containers. If using liners in 3 gallon containers you may want to use 2 to 3 liners.
-In climates with very mild winters, plants may be very late to emerge from dormancy.
