Great garden performance. Bud count & increase are wonderful here in my zone 4a garden, as one would expect in a similar climate to Karol Emmerich.

A friend sent me a fan of this in September. Hard frosts usually hold off in our area until late November or early December. My plant suffered pretty bad crown damage over the freeze-thaw winter, and many tiny new fans emerged from the side and bottom of the damaged crown. These grew into a mighty fine clump that never suffered crown damage again. I suspect this is best divided and moved in spring, not fall!
