I got a double fan of Worth It All in 2010 and it is now 12 fans. Not a huge increase, but for where I have it, that is okay with me. In my zone 6b garden, it blooms about 3-4 weeks in June. I have not seen any rebloom on it and it has never had rust.

It has a wide range of colors depending on the weather, ranging from a faded peachy-pink all the way to a very deep rose. Most blooms fall somewhere in the middle.

06-08-2019 - The scapes are only 22" tall with a 6.5" bloom sitting just on top of the foliage. I would prefer to see these blooms on a taller scape, but it does make a nice border plant next to the house. It is listed as fragrant, but because it is so short, it would not be easy to smell unless picked, so it probably only has a light fragrance.

I've looked at a lot of my pictures and for the most part, it gets 2-way branching with about 10-12 buds per scape.

I had it for several years in Ohio and it was just as Vickie described. The downfall for me was the height, but I did like the blunt sepals.
It is also one of those plants that begins to open the day or so before, and those blooms appear to be deformed until they fully open...
kind of like a butterfly that has just emerged from it's cocoon. The down side of that is that it tends to be spotty sometimes.

I don't recall that I ever got any pods to mature on it, but that was several years ago. I just got it again this year, which says a lot. Thumbs up
The evergreen plant was also an issue for me at the time, and I think it might perform better further south, but it did fairly well here.
Unlike a lot of evergreen plants, this one did increase well. The low bud count was also an issue. There were times when a scape
might only have 4 buds, and sometimes 8. The green throat is the part that I wanted.

Deryll, you are correct about the spotting. I had thought of that, but forgot to mention it. Each year, some blooms would have spots on them. I have had thrips in the past and this year was no different, so I suspected that maybe they were the problem.
