|"Punxie Phil" was a really good plant, but I let it go a couple of years ago to make room for newer plants as I expanded into dips. But it was a good one and had consistently wonderful blooms.

|This Trimmer has grown well here. It is quite tall and has given rebloom on some years. Holds fairly well in afternoon. Large flower on registered-height scape. Average multiplier.

|I bought Punxsutawney Phil for the name sight unseen until the picture was printed to add to my list. 2015 was the year it was getting acculmated to my garden. It grew but didn't bloom. It has grown this spring and looking forward to seeing it bloom.
