|A vigorous grower. Decent bud count. Glowing throat and attractive watermark. This year it was splotchy a lot, but it was an unusual year.

|This is a great plant. It does very well in my Zone 5 garden. Takes dividing well, as I seem to dig into it every year. It is splotchy for the first several blooms, but then it improves greatly. The bees do a good job of setting pods.|

|This is still a young plant in my garden, but it did bloom and rebloom this year. I did have a scape to blast on the plant in early spring, one of only a few plants in the garden to do that. The scapes were very thick and held the blooms up high. Not a lot of buds on the plant this year, but hope for more next year.|

|It scape blasted badly for me the first few years I grew it but has stopped and is now very dependable and is in many ways a better plant than it's sibling BELLE COOK.|
