    Pollen is good for me in zone 6, I have yet to get a pod from it, but will keep trying. Fabulous intense color on this one and it blooms end of July into August for me in MD.

First bloom of 2020. Planted in Sep 2018. More blooms this year, but clump appears to be a slow grower. Bloom is the brightest red velvet.
