H. Apple Tart has been in my garden since 2008, has multiplied very well. Blooming in July, its color holds up pretty good on hot summer days, turning from an rich red to a orange. I have not seen rebloom on it at all, but the scapes have nicely spaced 3-way branching with about 20 blooms that stand well above the foliage. I have never seen rust on it.
