    How is it that this hybrid didn't win more praise and awards? Is it because Blyth being Aussie this hybrid wasn't eligible for AIS recognition like HM, AM, etc? Or has the plant been a poor performer for folks here? I just got the rhizome last year, and the growth was a bit slow, but the bloom stalk and first flower that opened today are special!
