The flowers are pretty, but as you can see the foliage is terribly bug-ridden. Not much aphids anymore, it's mostly caterpillars which I pick off regularly- just got a ton so waiting for the next outbreak- and leaf-hoppers, which are darn hard to catch.
The flowers still tend to droop forward, so I am habitually cutting them to display in the house in a tiny vase.
Plant must be feeling well, though- busted out a new shoot which has doubled in height since I took this photo- and that new stem has hardly any bugs on it. I keep checking.
