The first season in the garden, this one did not bloom. However, in 2017 it produced several of these, same color and size. Scapes are sturdy, 6" less than registered at 30" here with a decent bud count of 13 with 3 way branching. The color is unique and starts early at mid July here. A keeper for me.
