I have had Navajo Princess for 10 years and I love it. I have heard it said that it is tender in the north but I have never had any problems with it. It is not a rapid increaser but that's fine with me. Flowers always open perfect even on cold mornings. It is also fertile both ways. I plan on keeping this one!!! Scape height is usually the registered height. It also has nice foilage.

Yes, another oldie but goodie - Navajo Princess has been here 25 years and I can report that it is not tender here in my Zone 4b garden. I agree with Cindy - not a big increase in the clump over the years but it hasn't always been in a good spot. Yes, opens well after cold nights too
