Frances Joiner has been in my garden for many years it does very well in it's location near the arbor. I just pulled the spent scapes the other day there was a lot of them from my nice sized clump. I do not have many doubles, but this is one that caught my eye with it's lovely blooms making it a keeper.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!

Quite short and blooms out rather quickly here, but very well formed and eye catching.

I really like the coloring on Francis Joiner, so delicate. After only one year growing here, it has reached 19", less than the 24" registered, with a bud count of 7 on 2 way branching. I hope that increases with maturity.
