I've had GET JIGGY for a few years now and until this year I never saw any sort of eye pattern. It always looked like this:


And then the very first bloom this year looked like this:

YEA!!!

But no other blooms this year looked like that -- and yet I'll keep it because it's a good plant and sets pods -- and I will always hope to see that pattern again someday!

I got GJ this summer from an ebay seller. I pot planted for a few weeks and then planted in a garden with several other new cultivars. The plant grew quickly from two fans to four, but then it got hit with the dreaded rust. It was near another new plant from a california grower and everything around it contracted rust. Get Jiggy was hit hard and dwindled away to nearly nothing, but I'm hoping it will rebound in the spring.

I have had Get Jiggy since 2013. It grows to registered height and bloom size. It shows some pattern on most blooms. Best bud count to date is 14. I am hoping it will increase as it clumps up. It is both pod and pollen fertile. I have several seedlings I look forward to seeing.

Love what you teach and teach what you love!

I got GET JIGGY two years ago and it has flowered late October or early November. It does not die back in the colder months and acts like an evergreen. Unfortunately I didn't notice the cereals from the bird seed feeder had overgrown the clump this year. Even so, it has been forgiving and flowered well despite the mashed clump. The pattern on the blooms is nearly always there. I have not attempted to hybridise with it. It is susceptible to rust and I would rate it 3.5.

I have had Get Jiggy since 2010. The first 2 years, it showed no pattern at all. The third year was a charm and its lovely pattern was there, although I don't think it has ever looked as good as the hybridizers picture of it. I haven't checked bud count but seems to be fairly close to the stats. It is both pod and pollen fertile and is a reliable plant that does well in my climate. Increase is slow on it but that's fine with me. I plan on keeping this one.

I planted it this past spring so will have to give it several years to see if it will show the pattern. I had read that it did well for some northern gardens, so decided to give it a try.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!

I have Get Jiggy at the top of my want list for 2016 but I will be very disappointed if the blooms don't show the pattern. Now perhaps I need to find something similar. I am so happy I found ATP where I feel I can get honest opinions.

Get Jiggy hardly ever makes a pattern for me. This year.

I acquired 3 fans of this cultivar at the end of September 2015 and it was transplanted into a new raised bed the beginning of October 2015. This raised bed gets at least 6 hours of sun. It is planted near to the front of the concrete wall of the raised bed. I have to confess that it has been a disappointment since receiving it. It has yet to bloom for me.

It is currently down to 2 small fans each producing a single new leaf. It reminds me of a dormant plant that is starting to grow again, but it is an evergreen. I thought I was going to lose it this year because it has failed to thrive. It gets watered and fertilized regularly. I have no idea why it is doing so poorly. I may try lifting it to see if that helps.
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us.

This year, contrary to my statement here last year, GET JIGGY died right down in the colder months. It is now sprouting long leaves again in spring.
