Amazing shrub
We bought one of these at a garden show about 2 years ago.  The blooms in the picture don't do the shrub justice.  The blooms are about 12 inches long and 6 inches wide.  My little shrub has grown almost 3 feet in 2 years.  We lost part of the shrub to frost last winter.  It came back better than ever.  It has about 20 of the blooms on it now (October).  They get so heavy they tilt over.
