One of my favorite blooms. Nice sculpting but apparently not registered as such. It is easily pod and pollen fertile.

Flowers here in the last week of the second month of spring. It produces some fine children too.

The only thing against it is that it a bit of a rust bucket. Not the worst of one, but close.

This evergreen is quite reliable here. Blooms late midseason here. Sometimes rebloom.
