I bought The Goldilocks Effect in the summer of 2013.
The first time I saw it in bloom is this summer 2014, and by far it is one of the best looking polychromes I have ever seen.
Size is huge, flowers open wide with flawless blooms, seems to be an easy pod setter, branching and bud count are good and I expect it to only get better as plant grows to clump size, and it grows in the frozen tundra of NE Wisconsin!
How sweet is that?
I have been spreading the pollen on everything, this plant is on the grow forever list for me.
Highly recommended.
Ed Burton
