Siris it doesn't even have the same growing pattern......have never seen one with so many flowers, looks nothing like ours, will post a pic, see what you think?
Andrew. you won't be disappointed, it's a star, flowers all year...starts early ends late!!

I must admit that my first thoughts were that it was the wrong colour. But having said that my camera seems to struggle with some reds at times.
