Comments:

June 15: ugly shape; July 1: plant is ugly, flowers are cool; July 15: hard to distinguish flower from stem because of same color, ugly shape; Aug 1: flowers are cool, but hard to see; Aug 15: good in hanging planter, good for large scale planting of a logo or design, filled in nicely, healthy and full, but ugly habit and foliage shape/texture, flowers are very cool; Sept 1: more contrast, ugly foliage hides cool flowers, really filled in.
