I am wondering if these plants are the actual Butter & Sugar. We have had this
one for several years and the falls truly are butter yellow and they remain
pretty good through the life of the blossom. Our sun is probably less intense
than yours but maybe not by a whole lot. Our temperatures are in the 80's
these days and many other flowers fade much worse than Butter & Sugar.
