|I'm making this my benchmark plant. It is doing everything I want in a plant. That's aside from the bloom, which I like a lot. It was a new double fan last year and put up two scapes and then put up two more scapes before the first ones were finished blooming. Those scapes were short. This year it has six fans and has put up four initial scapes. One of those scapes got knocked off by hail. The remaining scapes are now in the range of the registered height. I'll see the first bloom tomorrow, I think, but that fan has already put out a rebloom scape. I think I see two additional scapes coming on two more fans. I like all that! The foliage is nice and healthy. Not the very best foliage I see, but way more than merely acceptable. It is setting a pretty high benchmark! So a couple of photos for show and tell.|
In this view you can see the scape turning yellow after the hail took off the upper third.
From the other side you can see the new scape putting up beside the stalk that will bloom tomorrow (I think)

|Fred, mine survived one of the worst, coldest winter in my zone 5 garden, while in a pot!|
It is now in the ground.

|Yup! Definitely those were new scapes - plus another one. The second bloom of the season on LVT today and already all the initial fans with scapes have new additional scapes! Good news!|
