I bought 8 fans and planted them on 4/17/2015.
Because my borders were already filling up with annuals, I put them in a big pot.

The fans increased from April until now from 8 to 18(!).
It produced 11 scapes and started blooming on 7/17/2015, last flower on 8/10/2015, with a total of 51 flowers. :-)
I took away all spent flowers, so I don't know anything about its fertility yet.
It is making 2 prolifs, though :-)

I haven't measured the flowers... sorry Sad I promise to do better next year!
Flowers were well placed and didn't cramp each other.
The scapes ranged from 19 to 22 inches high. Scapes were sturdy and most were well above the foliage
Leaves and fans are narrow, but there are a lot of them.

This afternoon I took it out of the pot to put it in a border (annuals are gone :-D) and I found that in 4+ months it made a lot of roots.
Perhaps this is the reason the scapes didn't get as high as they should?

All in all, this is a spider that I really love and I'm sure it will only get better now that it is in the ground :-D
