My Hyperion Elite always blooms much larger than registered with 8-inch+ blooms and has a grand presence in the garden. Pairing that with faithful rebloom makes this a treasured plant.

Hyperion Elite may be a simple flower and an older introduction that has been around for many years, but it is a stunner in the garden, probably because of its simplicity, but also because of the large flowers.
