NOT READY FOR PRIME TIME (7/13/2022)
Unfortunately the plant is short, rangy and unattractive. It bloomed vigorously at first then as summer progressed it tapered off. Right now in July, Gulf Coast, Florida, the one year old plant is about 2' tall and no blooms. My purple Porterweeds on the other hand are huge, rounded and covered with blooms and butterflies. I took cuttings from it last year and planted it several spots and we ended up pulling them out because the plants were so unattractive. This is no reflection on Almost Eden, a company that's been excellent for years in every way. I'll remain a loyal customer and recommender of this company. Ruby Throat Porterweed needs breeding work to improve it significantly for plant form, bloom season and quality of blooms.

Ruby Throat Red Porterweed (1/17/2022)
Excellent for attracting butterflies. Sulphurs, Zebra Longwings, Gulf Fritillaries, and skippers seem to love it. Grew into a very nice loose vase shaped bush 5' by 5'. The biggest drawback is it has weak wood, and a gusty storm busted it up bad, and recommend staking only because of that.
