2016 Cayeux. Long lasting blooms that hold up very well to rain. Buds seem to open in slow progression, although this has to be monitored for subsequent years. It did show fairly severe leaf spot in the difficult and wet summer of 2017 and also had some foliage rotting in the same summer. Rhizomes seemed healthy with increases, but all roots are dead and most started to rot. Possibly a result from all the bleach treatment or from the excessive water? One small increase survived 2018.
