The 4-foot scapes on Parfait are skinny and do tend to lean slightly, but never lie over. Like many older cultivars, it does not have a bloom size listed in the AHS database, but it is between 4-5 inches and has a wonderful trumpet shape. Each scape produces about 10-12 blooms and it multiplies fast, making a quick clump in just a few years.
