Gina is one of those varieties  that produces an inflo so stunning that it catches your eye from across the yard. We haven’t been growing this variety long enough to see exactly what the growth habit is like, but the branches are stocky and it looks like it will be a well-behaved variety. The only downside to Gina is the scent, or lack thereof. There is a detectable scent if you take a bloom and lock it in a glass jar for about 10 minutes……and then you’ll have the disturbing discovery that it actually smells like root beer (or wintergreen….same thing). Neither one of those are my favorite things in the world, so I just keep Gina out in a very visible part of the garden and remain thankful that it doesn’t have an overpowering scent. With heat the colors change, and the petals will even curl over to give the flower a completely different shape!
