I can't say yet as to its performance, only received it late this summer. However, it never missed a beat, it started greening up & sending up new growth almost as soon as I put it in the ground. It is now doing quite nicely.

I acquired 2 fans of Blue Moon Rising in April 2016. It is currently potted up. I also received 2 other small blooming cultivars from the same source at that time. The other two cultivars bloomed, but Blue Moon Rising has yet to bloom for me.

It had a very nice root system and is doing well in a pot, but will be transplanted this Fall into a raised bed. It has currently increased to 3 lovely fans. I hope to see it bloom next year!
