|Jan's Twister was a gift and hasn't done well for me. Always hopefully for next year. Love the color and form.

|I love Jan's Twister. I have had it for many years. It is very hardy in the north and forms a nice clump rather quickly. It's stunning when several flowers bloom at once. Only downside is that it won't set pods for me but its pollen is dynamite. It does well in hot weather and blooms never melt here.

|Jan's Twister has a bloom I like to photograph. It quite lends itself to framing and each bloom can be idiosyncratic. It looks very good when there are multiple blooms and, if you have it, think of setting it as a feature plant in your garden.
I selected it for my subtropical garden because it had multiple awards and did well in the popularity vote. It flowers here late in the second month of spring or early third month and reblooms. It is a good parent, fertile both ways.
For some reason, I have not written down a rust score for it. Hopefully this means it is resistant. I will add this later as spring hits.
