    On my first year plant obtained from Floyd Cove in March of this year, the stats on this plant provided by the hybridizer were very close. The blooms were slightly larger than registered, the scape height was an exact match, and the bud count was 20 blooms per scape (counting all current blooms formed on the scape today). I am also pleasantly surprised that both scapes are growing two proliferations each! Astoundingly, one proliferation seems to be growing its own scape. Will take pictures of this as it grows large enough to see clearly in a photo.
