Comments:

15-June: 30-June: amazingly dense w/ many blooms, taking over its plot area, growing like wild; 15-July: fierce competitor, thick, some flowers turning dark red/brown, awesome, too tall; 30-Jul: bees love it, very dense, more of a barn red color this week; 15-Aug: some falling/splitting among hedge, some plants done flowering while others not, dead heads detract, needs dead-heading; 30-Aug: needs dead-heading.
