I'll add my evaluation:

Apple Swirl was a bonus plant which I knew nothing about. A single fan. It was planted and pretty much forgotten among all the double and triple fans in the same bed .... until it bloomed ..... what a lovely cultivar! This one wowed me when I saw the very first bloom. Large bloom at 10". Love the lime green throat and the dark lavender pattern on the petals. The scape seemed to handle holding the bloom up even though it was not a thick scape. It multipled to 3 fans within it's first year. Definitely a keeper in my garden! If I remember correctly it produced 5 blooms on that one scape.

I received Apple Swirl this Summer as a bonus as well Thumbs up

It didn't bloom for me this season, but has been making new fans so it seems to be settling in nicely Lovey dubby
