This year it was especially good when so many things were especially bad. Bud count, which often is lacking, was fairly good. And, of course, it is a beautiful bloom. Quite short.

Spiritual Corridor does have a beautiful bloom, it did bloom more for me last year then this year but it is always a welcome sight

I used to have it many years ago. It does have a beautiful bloom, but I got rid of the plant because (as MantisOH mentioned) it was short, and the bud count wasn't all that good (and it is not a rebloomer).

Spiritual Corridor has been a rapid increaser compared to others, it's a 3yo clump and its a huge clump! Bud count has been great since I've had it. It was FULL of blooms this year, it has just finished blooming. I have it in full afternoon sun.
A True gardener will purchase a thousand plants before thinking of where to put them :P

This plant did well for me the last two years, multiplying each year and producing beautiful blooms. This year I had a sprinkler malfunction in that bed, and almost lost several cultivars, including this one. It is now recovering nicely and I expect to see it back on track next year. In my garden, it was right on as far as the stats go. It is very pod and pollen fertile.

Although marked as a 3.0 for rust susceptibility, it has done very well here over the last month that rust has been an issue. I have pulled a few leaves, but nothing major, and the plant is not heavily affected. I will try to get a picture soon for the database (to show rust resistance-susceptibility) if I get a chance between storms in this welcome rainy weather.
