I was given a scape with 5 large prolifs on it this year. All 5 rooted and are growing. Thumbs up I should have a nice clump next year to evaluate. Crossing Fingers!

My experience is limited, but so far it is very floriferous and vigorous, though not so large as registered and not quite so tall.

Last summer was the first for Yellow Monkey here, and like mantisOH, not as large or tall as registered, but it bloomed heavily for first season & I really enjoyed the yellow blooms.
