Gripping Power came as a double fan plant and very nearly died its first year. I thought it was dead, but it revived and grew in the spring. It was very short, perhaps only 14 inches tall that first bloom season, and I was not happy with it, but this year is a completely different story. It grew well, increased well, and grew as it should. Blooms were big and beautiful and the plants were much taller, with dark green leaves. Overall, this plant recovered from a rotten first year and has become a very nice plant for me. Zone 5.
