These Dorotheanthus Mezoo were amazing! I have planted them for the past four years but first time from Romence Gardens. There was a bit of a delay in getting them but they really grew like crazy, and ended up filling my entire window box(es). They are still thriving even now, almost the end of Oct in Pennsylvania. I will buy from them again next year!

It is also a great choice to accent combinations in both sunny and shady locations. It is a trailer so use it in the spiller position to trail over the edge of your containers.

Homeowner Growing Tips: The flower is not real prominent on Mezoo trailing red so it should be used more as a foliage accent than your primary flowering component.
I love these Mezoos! They are thriving, still flowering and looking fresh and stunningly beautiful draping down my hanging planters and patio pots in northern Ohio at the end of October. During the summer, loved watching hummingbirds dart to each little bloom. They arrived well packed and when promised.
