|King Kahuna is an excellent performer here. The clumps increase quickly and they are covered with fluffy flowers come bloom time. It is rust resistant. It begins flowering in the last week of the second month of spring or the first week of the third month. It is easily both pod and pollen fertile. It blooms for an extended period and reblooms too.
It appears to stop growing in the colder months but does not die back.

|A nice, full, large double. Short as registered. Frequently reblooms here. Quite top branched.
