Do the stems really hold the flowers upright, without staking? Even after a storm?
The stems should be thicker looking and stronger than Annabelle's, provided the plant you get is not mislabeled. But if you get a strong enough storm with high winds, even roses can suffer.
As Luis says...the stems are thicker and even if they lean
a bit...they'll still be erect...make sense? I can't get enough
of either. They'll produce a few side babies in time which is
definite bonus. So does Annabelle.
