From Deona T. (TX) on 5.26.2021: "I have searched for this plant for four years, first looking for a picture of it since I distinctly remembered exactly what it looked like, then to identify the name of the plant, and finally - where to purchase it in the U.S.  All because:  The flowerbeds my mom planted - at my childhood home - were filled with them when I was young and I have memories of laying on the grass, beside these plants, up close and personal.  I moved back into that home in 2014 so now those same flowerbeds are mine. My search finally ended today, when I ordered from you.  It means the world to me, to bring my "mom's flowers" back, and I could not be more thrilled."
