Good morning Jon and everyone.

Again, I can't really add a report as I just received this CV a couple weeks ago. I will add that this is one that will be added to my 'Native American Heritage Bed'

Hope to see others reports soon.

'Apache Beacon' is one of favorite spideries. It's a strong grower, multiplies rapidly, is fertile both ways, and the scapes are tall enough to make it stand out in the garden. I can't say enough good about it!

I don't grow it, but do grow a lot of other Ned Roberts cultivars. I've seen some superb clumps of this cultivar at various National conventions. Here are images taken at the 2010 and 2015 Conventions, both in GA. Sort of fitting, as that was Ned's home state.
