I just planted Mike Longo this year so I cannot comment on it. Look forward to comments from others who have had it for a while.

Mike Longo has always done well for me here in my zone 5 garden. It was a little slow to multiply at first but has proven to be worth the wait. Beautiful !!

I find Mike Longo a slow grower and not always a reliable bloomer. Last year Maine had a long warn growing season and Mike was lovely. Maybe Michigan has a more reliable warm summer? Visitors have never commented on the plant until last summer. The flower has some substance and a nice ruffle.

I have had ML for about 4 years it is slow to increase even planted in full sun, when it blooms each year it is impressively lovely not just another yellow.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
