'Chiquita Maria' is a very sturdy upright. It has a definite upright growth pattern with stout thick branches to hold lots of the beautiful double blossoms it produces. It doesn't get tall and leggy, or put out huge long new branches like 'Cardinal' or the magellanicas. But will easily fill a four by four space to about four feet. This one is under a fruit tree and gets plenty of late afternoon sun.
