This has grown to such proportions dare I say it, "uuuge"! It is everso lovely though. Very elegant on a windy day with all the very long flowerspikes all akimbo, dancing away, and the humers keeping station as it's all waving about. It's clump will be shovel pruned, this winter, to about one quarter its current size and hopefully it will fit it's space better for a few years. This photo is a month old but it's still going strong just a month bigger! The side here, in the photo, is the sunny side and blooms the most. The north side blooms alittle later and the west side is in heavy shade and barely blooms. So with that info I'm looking for a southern exposure with full allday sun to plant some in for maximum performance all the way around. I'll measure it tomorrow and take another photo to edit in here. Rolling my eyes. It meaures up approx. 8x15 feet. The second photo shows the SE bloomy part to the left and the NE part that will bloom later.
