Color became solid

Doesn't look like the picture, but it is pretty. Resembles a bright cherry/maroon mini carnation.

Did not grow to designated color.

Vigorous plants growing with incredibly developed root systems, as has been the case with almost every specimen I have received from what will now be my chosen mail order nursery, but disappointed that these have only very small yellow blooms that look nothing like the advertised pictures in color or size.

Still, pleasant enough plants that add a nicely leaved, light yellow punctuation to my garden.

Hello! Thank you for your feedback. Flower color is largely in part to the temperature experienced by the plants when the buds were set. The flower color can vary throughout the season. We typically see the berry color in cooler weather. Once this bloom has flushed itself out, and the plant grows more established in your garden, you should notice the berry color flowers spring to life in your garden. If you have any additional questions, you can reach out to us at info@greatgardenplants.com. Happy Gardening!

Zesty Zinger Tickweed

A little too early to tell. Bloom is pretty but plant right now is a bit leggy. Hopefully will thicken up.
