This is an amazing cultivar for its prolific blooms. Six-way branching on strong scapes produces lots of blooms held above the foliage. Blooms are heavy substance.

I have had Royal Occasion for one year (planted July, 2016), and I am very pleased with its performance in my zone 6b garden. It has six-way branching on some scapes and five-way branching on others, and the blooms are lovely. It has already produced a very nice clump.
