we plant 6 plants each year. Yield is good. We make jam from the calix  after flowering. The flowers are very attractive. Since we learned the trick of using an apple corer to remove the calix from the seed , jam making is much faster!

Love these yummy flowers , love stewing with Apple and rhubarb . I grow about 6 a year in large self watering pots , because they are thirsty . I use the root mat afterwards to line my hanging pots . One day will grow extra and try jam.
