Even though this cultivar bloomed so late in the season that I couldn't use it as a pod parent (due to the heat), I loved the bloom so much that I had two clumps of it in different locations. Both clumps are gone, succumbing to crown rot within this past month.

It's always one of my best performers, with a high bud count and a long blooming time. It acts like a dormant in my garden and multiplies rapidly.

I have long loved TBP. It seems to me that it was one of my first in my yard that had that matted effect, along with JERRY HYATT and WIDOW'S WALK. I just uploaded my image to the database.

I have seen one seedling out of it:

TBP X NANA NANCE

I hope it's ok the mention offspring!

Steve - Yes, it is fine to mention and show photos of any children from any of the featured cultivars. Many of us wish to know more about a cultivar because we want to use it in our hybridizing program. Thank you for including that gorgeous photo of TBP X NANA NANCE seedling! Lovey dubby

I don't have this one, but it has been on my 'need to get' list for many years. It is beautiful as is Steve's seedling!!!!! I think I need to put it back to the top of my "want" list.
