Lady of Shallot disappointing in my garden

last modified: last month

Does anyone in Texas, Florida or other hot spots have good results with her. i have been growing 2 for several years and yes she blooms a lot but I need to get up and view blooms at 7 a.m. in order to see any with results even close to those I have seen here from Helen and others. And in spring of course in summer they open looking sad and sparsely petaled. whatever the season the blooms seem to shatter or turn ugh so fast. I have tried giving her more shade and more sun with same dissappointing results. Mine are both growing as climbers. The contrast between L of S and Abe Darby ( both growing on same Monet arch) makes L of S look all the worse.
