'Harmony' series of New Guineas--fabulous!

joannembMay 31, 2010

I got 2 different cultivars of white New Guineas this season, and WOW, the Harmony "snow" is out performing the Proven Winners "Infinity" by a mile. They are all on my front porch and get 4-5 hrs. morning sun. The harmony snow are blooming prolifically and have yet to wilt in the heat. The infinity on the other hand seem like they haven't grown much in 3 weeks. They are healthy, but the flowers wilt so quickly--while the Harmony ones stay for such a long time---I rarely find myself picking off spent blooms. I never thought there would be such a difference between 2 types. Of course I'm SO bummed that I didn't get more of them. Most of what I have are the Proven Winners. Oh well... next year I'll know better.

Have any of you had similar experiences?
