A very nice early blooming CV.

Stats listed are pretty close as this double produces a pretty tangerine bloom measuring in just under 5" here in my garden. The scape's are still a bit short as it is still settling into its new location at my new home. It did show some rebloom scape's this year and they are just as nice as the early spring blooms. Has shown a increase of a couple fans per year.

A keeper here.

I have had this cultivar for many years and it definitely is a keeper. I have never kept track of bud count but it seems to bloom for a long time. The drought did affect bloom this year. I am sure it will recover and do better next year. It is fertile both ways. It multiplies rather quickly in my zone and when a nice sized clump blooms, it looks very nice.
