Let's post our Top Brass photos here to show the various forms that naturally occur with this variety. I think I have three plants of TB. The original came from Klehm's many years ago.

This plant grows up at the end of my driveway.

Love the pink and cream mix of petaloids in the center puff . Does it have a fragrance? Do you have more blooms from Top Brass, LG? Mine does not have a bud this year.

Thanks Karen,

I know that my other Top Brass plants have lots of buds. It has a light fragrance, but you have to sniff the flower to smell it.

I hope to see others blooms here whenever they start opening.

My first year Top Brass was pretty much a tall, good smelling white flower with not too much special going on. Progress over 6 days:

Obviously until it does fully transform, this isn't 100% authenticated.

The return of perennials in the spring can feel like once again seeing an old friend
