More information can be found on their website:

Classy Columbus is a mid-season bloomer. There are currently no registered children.

This plant can be found in the ATP Plant Database at:

Please join in, if you own this plant! We would love to know more! I award an acorn for performance information posted to this thread.

Beautiful bloom! Slow to grow for me but may be its location ( will move it this year)
No attempt to hybridize so no report on fertility.

Love what you teach and teach what you love!

It was a gift plant for many of us at the 2012 AHS Convention. At first I didn't have room in the garden and was going to donate it, so I put it in a pot for the rest of the summer. Then it bloomed and the bloom was so gorgeous I decided to keep it. It has good plant habits, too, as I later found out. It has made a big clump by now and also has found a permanent garden spot.
