During the two week blooming period, the Grancy Greybeard flowers emit a sweet lilac scent, especially in the evening.

Reviewer: David Burge from Picayune, MS United States  
Plants arrived in good shape. Planted about 5 days ago. Although plants were full of foliage, so far i am seeing about 50% loss on foliage. Watering daily, but not too much. I think this is only due to heat stress and once acclimated these plants will do fine.!
