    Fooled me is a stunning, eye-catching bright light in my zone 6b garden, even without supplemental water. It makes a nice clump, and the flowers always bloom way above the foliage. I could not be happier with its performance.
  • Posted by scflowers (Warrenville, SC - Zone 8a) on Sep 7, 2015 12:54 PM concerning plant:
    Not sure what this cultivar does in other regions, but here in SC, it is sending up rebloom scapes.

    This is the second year that Fooled Me has been in my garden.
