Brightens any gardenReview by Allison
You can almost hear the salsa music! Rio Samba changes color as it matures and grows on a hardy full bush of dark green. The bright yellow, orange, red, peach and pink colors stand out in contrast. Beautiful to watch day by day. (Posted on 3/31/2015)
Carnival on a bushReview by Grammy
Black spot resistant and dependable. The bush is always full of flowers that change colors as they mature. It reminds me of being in the Islands for Carnival. Handles the cold winters well. Love this bush! (Posted on 9/18/2013)
