The robust branching plants grow to 24 inches tall and wide. The compact plants are well-suited for containers. When grown at AAS Trial grounds, ‘Cajun Belle’ showed no disease problems. ‘Cajun Belle’ was bred by Gordon Smith at Grow Star LLC and seed companies can purchase seed from PanAmerican Seed.
