The 2017-2018 Trial Garden at Penn State included this variety. It got great marks (4.5-5 on a 5 point scale) for uniformity, flowering, overall growth, but then it flunked IMO with the note that all plants were lost due to winter injury. Too bad, as the color is very pretty on the around half inch sized blooms. Compared with nearby varieties, when I saw a flat of this plant in April, the leaves were grass-green (not blue-ish).
