'Cutting Loose' is not only a gorgeous bloom, with many different looks during its bloom season, but outperforms in my New England garden. Not only does it have a long bloom season, 6 weeks, but it also reblooms into September. It also is a great plant to use in hybridizing. Depending upon what it is crossed with, and it is fertile both ways, the sdlgs. from Cutting Loose so far have been quite lovely and all very different. 'Cutting Loose' is one of those outstanding plants that I am very happy to have in my Vermont garden.
