While this one has been in the garden for just one year, I was very impressed with its vigor, color intensity, and substance. A welcome early bloomer.

I like having some early bloomers in my garden this one certainly calls attention to itself with it's large beautiful watermarked blooms and height it just stands out plus the touch of green in the throat makes the color pop. This has been in my garden for a number of years has good branching with plenty of buds it will be a permanent resident.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
Faith is the postage stamp on our prayers!

I have had Early Shirley for 2 years now and it is a early bloomer in my garden, like the color for the early season \, didn't quite get to the registered height in my garden but very few of mine did with the crazy weather we had.
