I have both AS and it's child, Tahiti Wind. (Below). AS hasn't bloomed for me yet. Will post more once it blooms.

Amethyst Sunset

It's pretty. I have to say that so far (only 1 year) Tahiti Wind out performs it in every way.
Moderate rust resistance. (Present but no significant damage by my slack standards).
Blooms above the foliage on sturdy scrapes.
Biggest complaint is the low bud count.
Can "cinch up" a little on very cool mornings.
