|Edith Sliger does well in my climate. It is fairly sunfast and has nice foilage. It is not a very fast increaser, which is fine with me. I have had it awhile and I don't believe I have ever had to divide it. It is also not pod fertile for me. Overall though, I really like the flower and it opens well except on very cold nights. Will probably keep it in my garden.

|Last year acquisition, and have it potted up right now. Can't wait to see it bloom this year.
