    This older cultivar is a real eyecatcher in bloom. Very large blooms that are very striking. Blooms low to the foliage, however.
  • Posted by GaNinFl (Florida Panhandle (Defuniak Springs) - Zone 8b) on Oct 17, 2015 4:56 PM concerning plant:
    I was gifted this CV in late September and it has already made a nice recovery and has also added an extra fan or two. I look forward to seeing it bloom next season.

  • Posted by Seedfork (Enterprise, Al. 36330 - Zone 8b) on Jun 30, 2018 1:31 PM concerning plant:
    Beautiful blooms but the scapes are too short and the blooms are often down in the foliage.
