Is Bombshell a bust?
I planted several 3 gallon Bombshell this past spring and they are struggling like crazy. Even all the plants in shade at the nursery look terrible.
They are severely thin and they didn't bloom what so ever.
This is the first time this has ever happened for a H. paniculata for me.
Granted its year one so we'll see what happens but for a first year plant its the worst of any paniculata I've tried.
My Limelight, Quickfire, Little Lime, Sweet Summer and Mystical Flame that I planted this year look substantially healthier and they all bloomed. Many other varieties I tried at my last home did well the first year too.
