  • Posted by cinvasko (VA - Zone 6b) on Jun 3, 2020 7:32 AM concerning plant:
    New plant for me, purchased last fall. Interestingly, all four blooms this year had four falls and the normal number of standards. I didn't expect that on all the blooms but I enjoyed it. We'll see how often it happens next year as it gets established.
