I bought Jedi Brenda Spann (JBS) more than 15 years ago but unfortunately I planted it in a poor location. I have never seen it bloom but it has survived, barely. I am trying to recover a substantial number of cultivars that I have neglected terribly and it is one of them. What I can say about it is that it survives zone 4 winters and heavy weed infestations but does require good garden growing conditions to thrive and flower.

If I am successful in getting JBS to recover it should bloom in two to three years. I will then be able to post a more informative description.

This is one of my favorite dips, that I can honestly say, grows quite well here in the south. It is rust resistant and produces lovely blooms on thick, sturdy scapes. The color of the blooms change as the day progresses, from a pretty pink to a peachy color.

I received this plant in the summer of 2015. It's bloomed every year for me. This year it bloomed from May 31 to July 1. Mine has 2 large fans and 1 smaller fan. It produced 2 scapes. Bud count was 18 and 21. The height of the scapes were 16" and 18" so the blooms appear near the top of the foliage. Blooms are 5-1/2" to 6". The foliage has wide, thick leaves, which for me have made a tight small clump.

If this plant does well up north (?), then it is an all-around great cultivar!
