These have been blooming for a couple of weeks now and they are still blooming beautifully. At first the yellow ones came up and I thought none of the other colors were coming up. Then a little later another color came up. Then awhile and another color. Fun to watch and now they are all blooming together an are so pretty. They are very nice. I would highly recommend the Giants.

We planted these in the rocky, clay soil next to our front sidewalk (then forgot we did so). These bloomed beautifully, and were a nice surprise during this extremely gray, rainy winter.
