Athens Select



As was the case last year, I am evaluating a few Athens Select plants this year. I was sent four and of these the Verbena ('Princess Dark Lavender') is wonderful. The two Pennisetums I received ('Princess Molly' and 'Princess Caroline') are doing O.K., and the fourth plant, a Pentas ('Stars and Stripes'), did not make it through even the first week. It arrived in very poor condition and could not be saved. Too bad for the Pentas, but I love the Verbena!
