Judy has performed well in my garden.The color has always been kind of between a pink and a cream and I think it needs to be a brighter pink.

Judy Farquhar is a beautiful flower sometimes and other times will hang up due to its ruffly nature. It is a very large bloom and when she is at her best is spectacular. I found her to be difficult to get a pod but it is possible, pollen is also difficult but possible. It took 2 years before she bloomed here but now she is a nice large plant Hardiness is good for my zone 6b, Judy Farquhar comes right back without any problem even though it is an evergreen.

H. 'Judy Farquhar' has been here since it was first introduced in 2004. It was planted in a full sun area but over the years, a small Japanese maple has gradually created more shade, and the blooms decreased proportionately. In spring 2014, the clump was moved again to a full sun area, where it is much happier. I have always liked the substance, bloom size, and happy color. I don't recall problems with the blooms "hanging up" or not opening problems over the past 11 years!
It is a moderately slow increaser in this climate, but I will monitor it carefully this year to see if growth rates improve now that its back in full sun/ optimal conditions. It has been divided only once since 2004, and there are only about 12 fans.
