I purchased this cultivar this fall, got it in the ground in mid-October, and I thought for sure I was chancing it. Lo and behold- it settled happily into its new home and the little darling threw up a scape.

I dutifully contemplated snipping it off- then I pulled off all but one bud... The bud turned into a flower...

I think the cold temps prevented a clean open.

I also emailed the seller about its ID. I was assured that when it blooms next spring, that indeed, it will prove itself to be PAUL AUCOIN. We shall see...

I can tell you that PA has over-wintered well- planted on the south side and well protected from wind. The fans were of good substance and if memory serves (I've been peeking at them all)- this one still shows green down low. More tomorrow if I can get a picture

from wind.

I hope to see the follow up on this post. I just can't see how what is depicted in your photo is going to change into a bloom resembling the database photos that Jon has in the original post. That dark center would have to change to a light watermark, wouldn't it?

@needrain: I know! I thought the exact same thing! ... I emailed the seller who was pretty adamant that yes it is PA and that next spring it will bloom true. so, I shall wait and see. I do have a second fan that could be PA- so I'll have two to compare. I had posted this pic as an ID question back in November and that opinion was shared by a couple of people.

I do plan on photographing a great new many cultivars, and this one is high on my list of ones to watch. I'll keep the forum posted : )

If it isn't PA, then I have an idea of what it could be based what was on the seller's website... (I know I wrote it down somewhere...)

A photo of the fans this morning. The left hand one was the one that bloomed.
