Outstanding performer in my 5b zone. It has increased very well for me. I have never gotten rebloom in my zone, but I get a month of bloom from this plant. It is always one of the first, if not the first, to bloom. This bloom grabs your attention!

Supposedly early midseason, but mine has just produced its first flowers of the year here in Liverpool on August 21!
Not complaining, only a few varieties are still in bloom.
